Camley Street - Designfarm Architects

Camley Street

Completion: 2014

Client: Urbanest

Architect: AHMM

Whilst working at AHMM, Dominique worked on this mixed-use project that offers a rare mix of 320 rooms of student accommodation, 40 residential dwellings, incubator office space, retail units and a café. It is composed of three brick volumes that step down to meet residential neighbours to the north and rise up at the site’s southerly apex to act as a gateway. Breaks between the volumes capture courtyards on the ground floor and allow visual and physical permeability from Camley Street down to the canal’s towpath to improve the connection between King’s Cross and Camden Town.
