Angel Edmonton is listed amongst the 10% most deprived areas for several of the English Indices of Deprivation with barriers to education, skills, training and employment, income deprivation and poor living environment. Yet, new homes, schools and workspace, in Meridian Water, regeneration efforts across the borough boundary, in Tottenham and the Joyce + Snell’s masterplan bring unprecedented opportunities, ascribing a new strategic significance to the town center.
Our proposals for Angel Edmonton address some of the long-standing priorities that the community has voiced, seeking to ensure that local people and businesses harness the benefits that regeneration brings. The project seeks to strengthen the identity of the town center through public realm interventions, transforms a disused garage yard and anti-social behaviour hot spot into work- and community space, introduces a school street in response to air quality deficiencies and establishes an urban room. The urban room brings Council services to a shopfront on the high street and provides an interactive setting to develop a vision for the future of the high street.
