Grahame Park, Barnet

Novell Tullett was brought in to help rethink the layout of this Seventies housing estate in North London.  The original design of inward-facing housing blocks and a collector road for traffic segregated from pedestrian zones, had resulted in an undesirable area that was in decline.  We designed more intimate and inviting community spaces including a square enclosed by shops a cafe and library, a new park and a playground.
