Modern mews housing scheme in Kentish Town
A mixed-use residential scheme in Kentish Town within the London Borough of Camden. The project consists of 9 high quality flats and office spaces aimed at SMEs, with a new landscaped mews.
The site is a backland brownfield site that faces onto a railway and contains a disused, dilapidated warehouse. It presents a fantastic opportunity to provide much needed housing and office space for local businesses in the area.
The proposals are a modern reinterpretation of the scale and appearance of typical London mews houses.
A refined material palette comprises of white brickwork, pale concrete and light metal cladding to create a building that reflects daylight and contrasts with the dark engineering brick of the neighbouring railway arches. The landscaped mews is planted with an array of silver birch trees and wildflower beds to help create a hidden oasis behind the hustle and bustle of the main high street.
Proposals have been carefully designed with the latest Building Information Modelling (BIM) software, which has allowed highly accurate daylight / sunlight modelling. The resulting building blends sensitively into its context and limits the amenity impact on neighbouring properties.
