Hatton Gardens 2004 Kentish Town 2009 Inverness Street Market 2007


INVERNESS STREET MARKET Location: Camden Town NW1 Client: London Borough of Camden The project aimed to regenerate a traditional street market which had suffered from a loss of stall holders and visitor numbers as well as being impacted by anti social and criminal behaviour from drug dealing. This street has historical significance as the site of the original fruit and vegetable market in Camden Town and is the link between the busy High street at one end and the residential area. Market traders, businesses and local residents were involved in extensive consultation to ensure that issues of crime, security, economic viability and sustainability were addressed through integrated design solutions. The proposals provided a redefined market layout, with innovative lighting, natural stone paving and tree planting. The proposals also looked at the ‘Offer’ of the market, the quality of the stalls and the produce on sale to attract a wider visitor base and longer stays. As well as fruit and vegetables and household goods, a hot / cold food area with relocatable seating was developed and new stalls provided. Electrical and water supplies were enhanced through pop up type power sources. The site works were completed late 2007 and since then a number of new stalls have joined the market. Designs for a new landmark mural along a blank façade were created and may form a future phase. The project was one of only three London pilot schemes to receive Government liveability funding.
