Cockpit Yard, WC1 London, UK

Sheppard Robson, in collaboration with Londonewcastle and Bouygues, drew up plans for a mixed-use development that breathes new life into Holborn Library and Archive. The design proposals stitch together a number of different uses within the scheme’s dense urban setting with the aim of:

  • Creating an environmentally robust and architecturally striking residential scheme, with private and affordable housing
  • Creating an inspiring building fit for the creative business incubator, Cockpit Arts, with a design that embraces the site’s industrial past
  • Re-providing the Services Depot brief onsite

The fundamental ambition behind the project was to reinvigorate the key public sector assets whilst also delivering a superior quality, sustainable residential scheme that maximizes the financial return for Camden.
