Artisan village in planning
JKA have submitted proposals for Haringey Council’s Meanwhile Campus for planning. The proposals for a disused car park and adjacent building in the centre of Wood Green include 9 artisan worksheds and a double-decker bus cafe arranged around community growing plots and a public space. The existing building will be converted to feature workspace for 10 small businesses and also provide a maker-space for small fabrication projects. The project is part of Haringey Council’s Meanwhile Campus project which seeks to introduce creative businesses into the heart of the town centre. The project is being delivered and managed by JKA and Meanwhile Space’s joint venture company, High Street Works. Works to convert the existing building are programmed to start before the end of the year, the artisan village will be implemented as a self-build project between January and March 2017. The self build programme will deliver further opportunities of engagement, learning and skills exchange. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to get involved.
