Roden Court, N6
Roden Court originally consisted of a series of 1960s buildings containing former YWCA studio flats set within a wooded garden sloping down towards Metropolitan Open Space. The scheme is designed both to exploit and preserve this mature landscape whilst fulfilling the brief to combine new homes for existing tenants with apartments for sale and an extra care home.
The design consists of two long buildings which create a central open space for the use of all residents. These buildings rise towards Hornsey Lane to create two slim towers. One of the blocks then extends further back, and steps down in scale to a single storey to address the garden and open green space beyond.
