Hampden Road, Hornsey

The site is a former industrial estate at the western end of Hampden Road in London Borough of Haringey. The New River defines the northern edge of the plot and Hornsey station is immediately to the west, across the railway line.
The proposal consists of two parallel blocks of flats set around a central space providing car parking and communal amenity.
The buildings are staggered both in plan and elevation, creating a stepped massing ranging between four and fourteen storeys in height. The lower portion relates to the neighbouring properties across the New River, whilst the slender taller elements mark the prominent location of the scheme next to the train station.
All units have been designed to meet the London Housing Design guide and most enjoy double or triple aspect, maximising access to daylight and providing attractive views towards the river and Alexandra Palace.
The architectural approach emphasises the articulation of the volumes through the use of different bricks and panelling around the windows.
