Planning approval for Bernard Works in Tottenham

bernard

Duggan Morris Architects and MRG Studio have achieved planning consent for a new, mixed-use scheme in South Tottenham.

The site forms part of Haringey Council’s Tottenham Area Action Plan, which seeks to identify potential areas for employment-led mixed-use redevelopment.

Bernard Works, a joint venture between Creative Social Enterprise ‘The Mill Co. Project’ and GCAP, provides 28 Affordable Workspace Units with 12 Tethered Affordable Residential Units. The scheme is set around a working courtyard, with 87 residential units at upper level, creating a sense of community rooted in place and work. In addition, the scheme seeks to cultivate community engagement – a new public park, public-use community pavilion, and café provide an interface between residents and the creative community.

Working closely alongside Duggan Morris Architects, MRG Studio has created a landscape proposal which draws on extensive analysis of the site’s context and history, and integrates the diverse aims and aspirations articulated by the local community. The overall scheme responds positively to the comments from Haringey Council’s Quality Review Panel on the need for amenity space to complement the built environment, to ‘give back to the community’ and protect, conserve and enhance the area for the public benefit.

Jose Rosa and Jennifer Mui, directors at MRG Studio said: “From the outset, we wanted to create a landscape scheme which would provide long-term, lasting benefit to the residents, community and visitors, reflective of the area’s rich industrial heritage. Our proposal focuses on a concept of working ‘habitats’ – habitats that work for humans, industry and the environment – each connected and mutually supportive. We are delighted that Bernard Works has been granted planning approval as an exciting and innovative new development with the end user strongly at its centre.”

The planning committee report states: “This proposal is very well designed and has been formulated with the needs of the end user in mind and offers an innovative approach to employment-led redevelopment which officers consider offers a model approach for future schemes.”
