Livingston Eyre was appointed as part of the design team up to planning stage, for this high-density mixed-use scheme adjacent to Arsenal Football Club’s new Emirates stadium. The development is mainly residential but contains a sports centre, shops and offices.
The building façades give the street a serpentine form, and the ground surface has been designed to allow vehicles and pedestrians to share the space safely. On match days, parking spaces can be suspended to allow coaches for away fans to park.
Pedestrian routes at each end of the street give access to the podium that surrounds the Emirates stadium.
The north side of the street is dominated by several large residential towers based on a circular geometry. Roof terraces intersect the towers, their curved forms accommodating play spaces, seating areas, water features, lawns and planting.
The south block has a communal garden to the rear, subdivided to create a number of linked gardens and play spaces.
