Isobel Place, Tottenham

Client: Newlon Housing Trust

Part of a strategy to safeguard the adjacent Edwardian Grade II listed Tottenham Town Hall, Isobel Place in Tottenham delivers 109 family homes. Situated on the backland site of the former Clyde Road Depot, the development was sensitively designed to complement its historical context, with apartment blocks arranged around two large south facing courtyards, providing amenity space for residents.  The larger courtyard to the west of the site is arranged around a retained façade of the former central depot clock tower range which was previously suffering from brick decay and water ingress, and has now been refurbished and converted into an attractive terrace of houses.

Along with Tottenham Town Hall, the development was named as Best Heritage Led Project at the London Planning Awards 2015. The scheme has also been shortlisted for the First Time Buyers Readers Awards, listed in Inside Housing’s Top 50 UK Affordable Housing Developments, and featured in an English Heritage publication as an example of successful residential design within a historical setting.
