2005 - 2012
Roden Court originally consisted of a series of 1960s buildings containing former YWCA studio flats set within a wooded garden sloping down towards Metropolitan Open Space.
Our scheme is designed both to exploit and preserve this mature landscape whilst fulfilling our brief to combine new homes for existing tenants with apartments for sale and an extra-care home.
Our design consists of two long buildings which create a central open space for the use
of all residents. These buildings rise towards Hornsey Lane to create two slim towers. One
of the blocks then extends further back, and steps down in scale to a single storey to address the garden and open green space beyond. The higher flats look down over the green sedum-covered lower roofs of Roden Court and out over the wooded gardens.
The scheme provides a total of 136 new homes, and includes 44 flats sold on the open market.
