Hawley Mews

The site, a surplus council car park of 286.7 sq.m located in the heart of Camden less than 100 yards from Camden Lock Market.  Taking an innovative approach to the layout, three mews houses are positioned one behind the other, a folded roof scape respects the neighbours outlook.

The Site

The proposal responds sensitively and innovatively to the constraints of an overlooked site of modest proportions.

The design maximises  the sites potential whilst minimising the impact on neighbouring properties

The Result

Three contemporary two bedroom courtyard mews houses are positioned one behind the other and accessed via a safe secure artist designed gated corten screen. Each house is arranged around a private south facing courtyard ‘city garden’ that acts as an outdoor room providing an extension to the open plan ground floor living space.

Construction completed September 2018

Quality of space

The central stair case works not only as circulation but gallery space, library and home office with a large opening sky light allowing daylight into the depth of the plan and cooling natural ventilation in the summer months. Making the very best use of the limited space to create light filled, practical and delightful family homes.  A  safe sanctuary in the heart of Camden’s vibrant hustle and bustle.  The very best of city living.
