Originally completed September 2017 as student accommodation, the building is now being converted into a 63 bed co-living accommodation providing amazing shared social spaces and upgraded design to all studios.
|Title:Viridian Studios, Kingston Upon Thames
|No. of units:63
|Completion date:Apr 2022
The site was acquired in 2016 with the benefit of a planning consent providing accommodation for 58 students. The property occupies a prominent corner position at the junction of Old London Road and Fairfield West in the vibrant town centre of Kingston upon Thames and was opened in time for the academic year 2017/18 and has proven extremely popular with students in Kingston with long waiting lists at the start of each academic year.
The building was originally provided with 58 studios for students and a retail unit on ground and lower ground floor.
In June 2020, we submitted an application to the planning authority to convert the accommodation into a co-living building with accommodation for up to 63 people and this was approved in 2021.
The building has now been refurbished to an extremely high standard which will convert the former retail unit into exciting social spaces for residents to use, including a cafe.
Other communal facilities include a large communal kitchen, private dinning room, cinema, private work spaces and entertainment facilities.
A large landscaped roof terrace is provided on the roof of the building offering unparalleled views of Kingston.
Situated in the heart of the city right next to Kingston’s vibrant town centre with a large selection of shops, restaurants and bars on the doorstep, converting the building into co living will provide much needed and attractive accommodation for young, aspiring professionals.
All studios are being upgraded to provide the ideal living space in a carefully coordinated design of high quality of finishes. Ranging in size from 17 m2 to 24 m2 each studio offers a 3/4 sized double bed, its own kitchen, en-suite bathroom and breakfast bars.
