Mixed-use development which combines modern commercial space and housing with private gardens and parking

A redundant light industrial site within the sensitive context of the Crouch End conservation area has been transformed into a mixed-use development which combines commercial space housing. There are three distinct components to the development – terraced houses on Coleridge Road, mews houses in the centre of the development and commercial units accessed from Crouch Hall Road car park.

The scheme repairs the existing traditional terrace on Coleridge Road with two substantial five-bedroom family homes which adopt the proportions and materials of their neighbours at the front, but which change to a contemporary aesthetic at the rear to relate to the mews.

In the centre of the site are six mews houses built using traditional materials such as brick, timber and slate, typical of existing mews in the area. Changes of level have been imaginatively exploited to provide discrete under-garden car parking for the terraced houses
The commercial building beyond provides a gateway to the mews, screening the houses from Crouch Hall Road car park.
