The Standard Hotel
Camden Town Hall Annexe
Kings Cross, London, United Kingdom
2012 – 2015
Client: Crosstree Real Estate Partners
Originally built to house the council offices in 1974, the building was vacated in 2013 when the council moved to Pancras Square. Compromising a Brutalist pre-cast concrete façade arranged in a series of 5 curved bays, the proposal seeks to work with the existing form to create a bold addition for a new Standard Hotel.
Work was started on the project whilst members of ICA were at Orms Architects, and subsequently ICA were retained as design consultants to collaborate up to planning stage. The project received planning consent in 2015 and the scheme was built out on site by Orms Architects and Archer Humphryes Architects.
