Connection to Harringay Warehouse District

Harringay’s Warehouse District thrives from it’s resident users, makers, artists, writers, musicians, professionals, students. Open minded and free spirited this area has developed into a forward thinking hub for creatives of all sorts.

We want to promote the heterogeneity of the HWD through the flexible usage of the pavilion, and through involvement of resident artists and makers wherever possible, from moiré fence design, murals, art displays, to performances and pop-up food stalls and markets.

Proposal Outline

A powerful intervention on the corner of Eade Road and Seven Sisters Road is to raise awareness of the hidden gem that the HWD is, and provide a place for locals as well as visitors to gather, socialise, present, and entertain themselves.

Rather than a purely design-driven approach our proposal uses a hands-on practical language – utilising the existing open space for multiple uses, giving the area a clear identity and providing a strong statement that the HWD has a story to tell.

Responsibly harvested timber forms the base for construction, ensuring no damage to the surrounding environment, or to native flora and fauna is caused.
Modular construction for most of the pavilion allows for a variety of layouts and flexibility in uses, and allows for easy assembly and disassembly. Reusability of the pavilion, or part thereof, is easily achieved.

The heterogeneity of the HWD community is promoted through the flexible usage of the pavilion, and through involvement of resident artists and makers wherever possible, from moiré fence design, murals, art displays, to performances and pop-up food stalls and markets.

A sensible yet powerful gate to the #HarringayWarehouseDistrict!
