5- 17 Haverstock Hill

Cambridge Gate

Two 7-storey apartment buildings of double and triple aspect apartments arranged around a landscaped courtyard.

5- 17 Haverstock Hill
Cambridge Gate

The scheme is conceived as two elegantly proportioned 7-storey buildings; one fronting Adelaide Road and the other addressing Haverstock Hill. Between these two blocks the massing steps down to form a generously landscaped courtyard that, together with the proposal’s light toned facades creates a complementary foil to the distinctive ox blood red tiles and prow of the adjacent Grade-II listed Chalk Farm Station.

The new building will replace the existing car storage facility Eton Garages (1939) with 77 high quality and generously sized apartments, the majority of which are dual or triple aspect and a small linking block to the west houses a mix of Social Rented and Intermediate Affordable apartments.

The building’s wide gridded brickwork facades are inspired by Camden Town’s rich heritage of factory and transport buildings. Inlaid into these elevations are more refined stonework reveals and curved glass which, together with the grand top-lit reception area and landscaped central court, reference the Mansion Block typologies of Belsize Park to the north.
