Camden Market Canopy - New London Awards 2023 Winner

Winner in the Retail and Hospitality Category

The Camden Market Canopy hosts a new bar that is perched alongside a Grade II* Listed Horse Hospital and a railway. The lightweight structure has been delicately positioned above the historic built fabric of the Stables Market, on the corner of two busy streets. The design draws on the heritage of its location, with an undulating steel pattern, and acts as crown, signaling North London’s newest hotspot. Bespoke V-shaped columns reference horse stable design, alluding to the history of the site and highlighting the north corner of Camden Market. 

The brief was to create a light-weight canopy that responds to the rich contextual heritage of the site, and becomes a strong visual marker for this prominent urban site. In terms of heritage, the canopy sits within the Regents Canal Conservation Area and is immediately adjacent to the Grade II* Listed Horse Hospital.
