Go-ahead for Orms’ Camden Town Hall Annex redevelopment

  • Comment

Proposals to convert Camden Council’s Brutalist Town Hall Annex into a 270-room hotel have been approved by the authority’s own planning committee

The eight-storey annex opposite St Pancras Station was designed by Camden’s in-house architects and completed in 1974.

Under the Orms-designed scheme for its redevelopment, three new floors will be added to the existing structure, after the removal of roof-top-plant-equipment storey. The building’s east-west stair core will also be removed to open up a new north-south route at ground level.

Orms’ proposals were supported by English Heritage, which welcomed the reuse of the annex on the grounds of its ‘considerable design merit’, and accepted that the height extension was “integral for making the design fit for purpose”.

The project’s developer is Crosstree and the hotel’s eventual operator will be The Standard brand.
