Following grant of planning permission handled by a local architects practice. Our brief was to develop the scheme from a schematic planning design inherited from the original architects, in to comprehensive working drawings and details for the tendering and construction phases.
The site being sited in such a central location fronting Prince of Wales Road along Kentish Town Road, it was paramount that the inherited designs were delivered in their best guise and enhance the street scene. Despite aesthetics being a key factor, the main constraints came in the form of the proximity of surround structures. The site is bordered by 3No building, one of with was, and is proposed to be, adjoining. The existing strata had to be excavated to accommodate the proposed basement space and large engineering works/solutions had to be implemented to ensure a safe and incident-free build.
Our client, SDI, were delighted with the handling and professionalism of the construction phase of the project, from which MPSL have since been instructed on projects nationwide.
“It has been great to handle such an interesting and complex project. The building will hold a poignant status in the street scene in central Camden with its bold design and bespoke detailing.”
