Hampden Road

Hampden Road, London N8

The site is close to Hornsey Rail Station and occupies a triangular piece of land between the rail track, the New River Canal, and Hampden Road. The owners operated a steel yard on the site and appointed us to secure planning permission for a residential development. The design concept was developed from the process of stratification and erosion as an expression of the forces around the site and their effect on the design process. We aimed to create a dramatic new landmark on this underused site and obtained full support from Haringey’s Design officer and Design Review Panel.
