Luxury Apartments, Camberwell

Client: Terramek Ltd
Architect: Michael Trentham (MTA)
Main Contractor: Mono Ltd 
Project Status: Completed 2014
Project Value: £2m

Contemporary 10,000 sq. ft. luxury residential development, comprising 9 apartments  arranged over 4 storeys with a single level basement below. The site was previously occupied  by The Crown public house near Elephant & Castle.

The development was part of a framework where MPN provided full structural engineering  design services from concept to completion in converting former pubs into a new purpose,  often residential.

The single storey habitable basement occupying part of the building footprint is constructed  from reinforced concrete and the superstructure is supported on a piled foundation throughout.

The superstructure was assembled on site from prefabricated timber loadbearing panels  with solid timber joist floors and features integrated steel elements to form the cantilever  balconies. An elegant steel frame was developed to coordinate with the open elevations of  the penthouse, providing support to the partially glazed roof and facade.

The external envelope of this sustainable urban development is clad in pressure treated  Siberian Larch, interlocked with matching London stock brick-slips and features a green  sedum roof.
