Haringey, London, UK



The Harringey Warehouse District (HWD) is a vibrant community of local creatives and artists that live and work in the warehouse buildings once home to the local garment and manufacturing industries of Harringey, North London.

Our landscape and public realm strategy for the HWD aims to enhance the communal and public spaces throughout the district. Setting out a framework of potential upgrades and urban strategies and guidance for future development across the ?? ha of land. This will improve connectivity, legibility and sustainability site wide.

Landscape/ Public Realm

As part of the landscape strategy for the entire development, we aim to work with the community to develop the public and communal spaces, and also ensure that each where possible each dwelling has a private space. Developing a language that helps identify the difference between the various types of accessibility.

A bold signage strategy, combined with local artwork and biodiverse planting will transform the area into a vibrant and welcoming hub for the local community and visitors.

One of the main interventions we propose is to establish ‘Parklets’ along one of the main roads at the site, Overbury Road. Residents on Overbury Road have limited access to outdoor space and there are a large number of general waste and recycling bins along the pavement, which often overflow and cause obstruction. We are proposing building communal parklets to house waste-bin stores, residents’ bicycle stores, visitors’ bicycle parking and provide seating and planting for residents.

Work Units

The site at 2 Overbury Road was of most concern to local residents and businesses due to high levels of fly-tipping, anti-social behaviour and unregulated parking. This site, which is in a prime location at the heart of the Warehouse District, has been transformed into an innovative workspace for local creatives as well as providing a space for local community activities.

The new maker spaces and workshops, landscaped outdoor space with improved lighting and cut-through will improve north-south connectivity and permeability at the site, together with enhanced refuse provision and facilities for cycle storage.

Figure head development

As part of the ongoing development of the area – the intention is to create new build Warehouse living. The site on the corner of Seven Sisters Road is deigned to be a figure head for the area. With buildings designed by MoCo, within the urban framework and landscape we have developed, this site has recently won an NLA award.
