|:||The mixed-use tower contains 445 rooms for Queen Mary University of London students and the site is on Stratford High Street, near the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. At its lower levels, there are also two floors of artists’ studios and a café, with separate entrances for each. Ensuite student rooms are arranged in flats with shared kitchen/dining rooms. There are also studios, ‘micro-clusters’ and some flats with shared shower rooms. Common rooms are located throughout, with communal laundry rooms adjacent to encourage further student interaction. The artists’ studios are provided in a range of sizes with high ceilings and basic finishes. The tower has a triangular plan giving a slim profile due its acute angled corners and has similar proportions when viewed from any direction.|
