The bright white exterior is offset by the colourful hues that cover the corridors.

A vision for modern student housing

Scape was founded on the core belief that developing long-term relationships engenders a spirit of sharing and partnership, delivering exceptional results. Managing the entire life cycle of each asset to ensure the best levels of service for students, Scape plays a vital role in the key elements of Design, Build, Operate and Finance. Scape has plans to develop over 2,500 student beds in central London over the next three years, with other developments taking shape internationally.

Scape works with best-in-class providers of education and experience to extend beyond traditional student halls. We collaborate with the architects and designers on every aspect of our luxury student studios and communal areas to offer a new standard of accommodation. We gather student feedback at every step of the process to ensure a rewarding educational and social experience. 

Creative input

Scape sets itself apart from the competition because it was designed with students in mind. The energy and vibrancy of the brand is brought to life in our locations in everything from the colourful accents and bold signage to the hi-spec and sleek designs. The brand is dynamic, distinctive and accessible – affordable and aspirational.

Ab Rogers Design
Leading interior designer Ab Rogers helped develop the concept for Scape, resulting in a stand-out alternative to traditional halls of residences. Ab provided modern student room designs which allowed for maximum efficiency at a competitive price. Each studio has been curated to offer a haven for study and relaxation.

Award winning architects, Allford Hall Monaghan Morris have worked with Scape and Ravensbourne to create the second of the Scape student halls on the Greenwich Peninsula.
