Metropolitan Workshop was part of the team of five architectural practices redeveloping the post- war Stonegrove and Spur Road Estate in Edgware, North London. The redevelopment will provide 937 new homes along with a range of community uses, new parks and public spaces.
Within this overall framework of eight zones, Metropolitan Workshop has designed a new terrace of 138 homes along Stonegrove. This is divided into three sections and is configured to retain and enhance the existing mature trees on the site. Working with the London Borough of Barnet Planning Department, we have devised a highly articulate scheme using materials which pay homage to the surrounding context.
Projecting apartments at upper levels alternate with communal roof gardens and denote entrances. Balconies are recessed into a deep brick plane adding relief to the elevations and work as a counterpoint to the copper clad projecting boxes at higher level.
