Camden Town Hall Annexe
Location: LB Camden
Client: Bellway Home
This opportunity sought ideas for a site immediately adjacent to St Pancras Station and its Grade I listed facade, a unique and internationally recognised setting. The questions which this posed were how could the masterplan for Kings Cross incorporate this site, at the very southern tip of this major regeneration area, and how might this location learn from new development at other key stations around the city.
Significant iconic buildings have been placed close to or on many of London’s transport interchanges, most significantly the Shard signifies the ambition for establishing London Bridge as a location of change. With that in mind our proposals considered the opportunity for a tall landmark building here – one which could sit comfortably within the key views of and towards the listed building. One which could provide a simple and elegant architectural solution on this prominent site.
