Arundel Square, N7
The original Arundel Square was never completed. After three sides were finished the Victorian developer ran out of money and the North London Line was constructed in a cutting on the south side of the central gardens.
In PTEa's radical approach they have decked over the railway, creating an extra acre of land. Half of this land has been added to Arundel Square Gardens, and on the remainder they have completed the square with a contemporary six-storey apartment building. Its layered façade has been designed to harmonise with its surroundings, taking its framed proportions from the brick pilasters and sash windows of the existing houses.
