Camden Lock Village

Completion: Ongoing

Client: Stanley Sidings

Architect: AHMM

Whilst working at AHMM, Dominique worked on the Hawley Wharf Masterplan that transforms a neglected site in the heart of Camden Town into a vibrant new destination whilst enhancing the inherent identity of the area. Eight new buildings – set among the existing railway viaducts – and two refurbished buildings, including the Grade II Listed 1 Hawley Road, are arranged around three major new public spaces and several new pedestrian routes which reconnect the site with its neighbourhood, balancing the needs of both residents and visitors. The lively mix of uses includes 170 affordable and private homes, a primary school for 210 pupils with a 26 pupil nursery, incubator workplace units, artisan and industrial workshops, a local cinema, a variety of local retail opportunities and a flexible and open market building that addresses the Regent’s Canal to create a revitalised sense of place. The scheme achieved planning consent in just seven months from appointment. – The site is located at Hawley Wharf and is bounded by Chalk Farm Road, Castlehaven Road, Hawley Road, Kentish Town Road and Regents Canal Tow Path.
