Camden Courtyards named Best New Place to Live
1st February 2019
Camden Courtyards was named Best New Place to Live at last night’s London Planning Awards ceremony, during which the most ambitious and innovative development projects in the capital were celebrated.
Camden Courtyards is a fully residential scheme on a prominent site in Camden Town. Sheppard Robson was appointed by Barratt in 2013 with a brief for a split of 50% private and 50% affordable. This led to a concept of a double courtyard scheme with the building in the form of an 'S' shape. The dimensions of the site lend themselves to narrow blocks which allows for dual-aspect apartments. The site is bounded on two sides by busy roads, so providing an aspect into a calm quiet courtyard ensures better quality outlook for the residential apartments.
The building provides 164 residential units and is seven storeys at its highest. There is a five-storey parapet with one or two storeys set back; to the rear, the parapet steps down to four storeys.
