Cembrit Metro cladding has been installed on a mixed use development in the heart of Camden, London to provide a decorative finish to complement the surrounding brickwork. Approximately 500m2 of Stockholm cladding has contributed to the building achieving an accredited sustainability status.
The 15,000m2 site, which will improve accessibility between Kings Cross and Camden Town, also houses a retail shop, café and restaurant and enterprise incubator. London-based architect, Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM) specified Cembrits Metro cladding with the design plan of the brickwork peeling back at the corners of the envelope, revealing a contrasting palette of glazing and cladding.
The new mixed use development on Camley Street consists of three blocks which incorporates 320 student accommodation rooms and 40 two, three and four bedroom properties. The new build is due to complete at the end of June 2014 and achieving sustainability status has played a key role in the development.
