The architects of Camden Courtyards, Sheppard Robson, are long established locals. Their aim was to create a building that reflects Camden’s attitude, so they drew from the area’s eclectic Victorian and Georgian architectural roots to create something fresh and contemporary.
Camden Town is internationally renowned as one of the most dynamic places in London. Famed for its alternative fashion, acclaimed music scene and the well-known Camden Market.
On the Barratt Developments – Camden Road development, the needs of the occupier have been carefully considered throughout for the private occupiers and the residents of Newlon Housing Trust; from a communal roof terrace offering views over London, a tranquil courtyard and 12 hour concierge service through to a significant feature on this project; the provision of Parcel boxes.
The considerable growth and convenience of online shopping has resulted in the consideration of not just mail but parcel delivery, particularly in projects where the occupier is likely to work and have the inconvenience of missing deliveries.
Chosen in RAL Gentian Blue with vinyl numbering to identify the apartment allocation, this simple manual parcel box solution installed by Barratt Developments have provided a simple receptacle for parcels, recessed into the walls making a fantastically inspired use of space, ensuring this development is future proofed and provides commitment to the modern growing requirements of millennials.
Affordable, easy to install and highly effective for the residents, these parcel boxes form just one part of our fully comprehensive parcel box range of solutions we offer from manual systems through to fully SMART intelligent systems.

Details about the parcel boxes
The MEFA Hazel is a minimalist parcel box with loading chute used to store both mail and parcel deliveries at the same time. This type of parcel box is usually fitted into a freestanding arrangement (fixed through the bottom panel of the parcel box into the floor). For the Camden Road development, the parcel boxes have been fitted into a ‘bank of boxes’ to securely store parcel deliveries for the residents of the project.
Each parcel box has been fitted with vinyl lettering in a contrasting silver colour, allowing post delivery personnel and couriers to quickly identify which parcel box it is they have to deliver items to.
