The scheme, for developer Frankum Mews, aims to rejuvenate a collection of warehouses between Crawley Road and Downhills Way by providing a contemporary mews terrace of 10 houses and 19 apartments in two separate blocks framing a new pedestrian and cycle link in Wood Green.
The scheme opens up access through the site, and the new green link is bound by two linear blocks of accommodation, creating a pedestrian focused, mews street which encourages pedestrians to utilise the route. The northern block of accommodation zig-zags back in the centre of the site to create a new public space and address the building line of the existing adjacent terraced housing. A second public space is created to the eastern end of the site, in the form a small play area.
The accommodation is dispersed across two separate apartment blocks and a linear run of terraced houses. The apartments have been designed with multi-aspect views and full height windows to maximise light with access to a private balcony or terrace.
