High rise in Haringey


Formation Architects designed this new build residential scheme from feasibility through planning to on-site delivery for Fairview New Homes. The site is a former industrial site in the London Borough of Haringey. The buildings range between four and fourteen storeys to create 174 new homes, many with fantastic views over London.

We have cultivated an efficient and effective model of working with Formation Architects over the years; several successful projects later, we still have the same collaborative team, and are developing new design standards. It’s a pleasure working with such an organised and innovative group of architects whose track record is excellent!

Working with Fairview New Homes


Fairview New Homes bring a strong and established methodology to all their projects. Nevertheless Formation Architects were able to add further value to the concept rationalising the layout, adding more units and improving the articulation of the two parallel blocks of residential units.

Planning process


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. As with all our pre-planning projects, we helped navigate through the complexities of the planning process, the numerous pre apps and Design Review Panels, consultations and committees.

Delivery and Construction


Fairview have a highly efficient construction team with long-established ways of working. Formation Architects learned these systems and produced the construction documentation in the required format. The result is a project that was built on time and within budget.

Result


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 scheme enhances the public realm in its prominent location and the scheme sold well in a difficult market.
