Camden Road, LondonBack
Constructed directly on the site boundaries and on the busy junction of Camden Road and Brecknock Road in north London this six storey building, including a basement, certainly would not have been everyone’s cup of tea and beyond the means of many contractors.
The Victorian basements of three houses were completely removed and replaced with a bigger, deeper basement with open- plan commercial space of a nearly 3000sq ft over two floors. Designed to suit the client’s needs, the area was completed including shop fitting to allow them to “open for business” the day following handover.
On top of this, four floors of private contemporary apartments with balconies and terraces were built in a highly sought-after location in one of Islington’s conservation areas.
The build quality and design was of the highest order allowing half of the units to be sold at their asking price on the first day they were offered to the market. A remarkable achievement at anytime but never more so in these current difficult times.
