High Road West, Tottenham, Haringey, London, UK

Situated between Tottenham High Road and the railway line, the site will bridge the redevelopment of White Hart Lane station and the new Tottenham Hotspur Football Stadium, creating a series of new public spaces and facilities for the community.  Haringey Council and the London Development Agency set an ambitious agenda for the project to deliver a scheme with at least 2500 new homes of mixed tenure an new public library and leisure centre along with retail and workspace.

The masterplan has evolved out of the place: reinforcing existing and historic street patterns, complimenting the High Street and stitching in to adjacent nodes and routes.  This proposal for High Road West will create a step change in the urban fabic and public realm in the area, creating a sustainable new neighbourhood that has evolved out of the historic character of the area.  High Road West beneftis from a unique collection of surrounding environmental and built assets. Our masterplan has been developed to celebrate their quality, transform their setting and stitch together with high quality wayfinding and public realm design.

The masterplan is characterised by a series of distinct linear routes that work adjacent to the High Road, creating a new local centre.  A key concept behind the masterplan is to create a neighbourhood that complements and enhances the historic and primary route of the High Road, as well as White Hart Lane. The starting point was to undertake a review of successful London local centres that have major routes running through them. To achieve a successful place with a major road adjacent, there is often a complementary spine that runs alongside.  The main road acts as the primary artery, a robust street that is able to facilitate large vehicle movements including buses, lorries, vans and private vehicles as well as cater for significant footfall. However, off these roads, and often running in parallel are smaller, quieter, more incidental routes that weave off the main Road. It is often these streets, courtyards and squares off this route that people meet for a coffee, enjoy their lunch outside or stop to read a book.  It is these quieter spaces that people often want to stop, meet and linger in that so successfully complement busy and frenetic London Streets.
