Adam Khan, DSDHA and Duggan Morris scoop £40m Somers Town overhaul

  • Comment

Adam Khan, Duggan Morris and DSDHA are among a raft of teams chosen for the £40 million overhaul of Somers Town near St Pancras, London

Hayhurst and Co and dRMM complete the list of studios selected for the high-profile Camden Council-backed regeneration job.

The local authority launched a competition for the project – which is divided into four separate lots – in February this year (see AJ 18.02.14).

DSDHA has been appointed to masterplan the site and oversee the development of new landscaping and public realm.

Meanwhile Duggan Morris and Hayhurst and Co will design an £18.4million development featuring a new school and housing.

Adam Khan Architects will take on a £3.8 million ‘community hub’ featuring a nursery, residents hall and community garden. The appointment comes four years after the outfit completed the New Horizon Youth Centre nearby.

Finally, dRMM has been chosen for an £8.5 million private housing element including ground floor offices in Brill Place.

Camden Council’s cabinet member for children, councillor Angela Mason said: ‘This is a great step forward in developing exciting plans for the people of Somers Town, made possible by our community investment programme.’

She continued: ‘The design teams will be organising events for the whole community and talking to local people before submitting a planning application. It is important that the local community has the opportunity to get involved and have their say in the development of the designs for the area.’

Construction is planned to begin in 2015 and complete by mid-2018.
