Camden Transport Depot

This workshop and office building, with amenity space for drivers, was built as part of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link Works. It needed to be fitted into a tight triangular site in order to allow for critical programme sequencing of the work on the rail lines north of Kings Cross St Pancras. We tried to use simple and neat detailing to help keep the building looking smart in a very grubby environment. In particular the bespoke flush detailing around the large folding external doors to the workshops was successful in appearance. Our clients gave us several fact finding meetings and tours of existing facilities (to be replaced) which helped get the new design right for them.
