Watermill Lane

Allen Pyke were appointed by Origin Housing Association to produce a landscape strategy for detailed planning submission of this re-provided key worker neighbourhood, associated with North Middlesex Hospital. We prepared a comprehensive, illustrated report setting out the hard and soft strategy for each character area within the site.

Due to the increased site density the open space available has been constrained by buildings and have consequently been designed to serve multiple purposes thereby maximising the actual amenity space in the proposed scheme. This joined up approach to amenity, play and vehicular space is part of an holistic approach to design that considers lifestyle, health and well-being rather than a purely statistical approach and thereby sets quality of space and place-making as the driver in the design of the external spaces and public realm.
