Hawley Wharf

Camden,London. 2018

  • Project Details
  • Completion: 2018
  • Cost: £180 Million
  • Clients: Stanley Sidings

The Hawley Wharf Masterplan 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 amongst 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, artisanal 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.

Hawley School wins Camden Outstanding Design Award

Hawley School was given the Outstanding Design Award at the Camden Business Awards ceremony held on 30 November. The new primary school forms the first phase of the Hawley Wharf Masterplan, and comprises a new-build three storey building and the conversion and integration of a Grade II listed building.

Award judges ‘appreciated the quality of communal, collective spaces created by the framing of the central cloistered courtyard, with wide double height entrance hallways and corridors. Spaces are flexible and accommodating with generosity created through intelligent design. The diversity in materials is well controlled and both the complexity of programme and relationship of the school to its urban setting are sophisticated and well-handled.’
