AHMM Pen Euston Development

Continuing their recent streak of proposals, Allford Hall Monaghan Morris has designed this new office-led mixed use development to stand on Hampstead Road in the London borough of Camden.

Sitting on a 0.75 hectare site, which is currently in part an old petrol station, stands next to Carrington Street only 500 metres away from Euston Station and the cluster of tall buildings there.

The development includes offices at 132 Hampstead Road of 16,508 square metres and 140 Hampstead Road of 10,493 square metres, 65 square metres of ground floor retail, and 38 new apartments located in a 12-storey residential building.

The office building features a floating upper level, similar in a way to Alsop's Palestra. It also has set backs to break up the mass and reduce the perception of height from the street, with a brick plinth and aluminium cladding on the upper levels.

Giving the landmark feature is a residential tower is located on the northern part of the site. This responds to the triangular nature of the site with similar shaped floorplates. Cutting into its corners are recessed balconies with touches of colour to liven it up, with the top floors having double height recesses to prevent the building just abruptly terminating at its roof level.

The scheme is the latest of a splurge of new projects across the capital by Derwent London.
