Architects John McAslan + Partners, with Haringey Council, has transformed an empty Tottenham shop into a design hub offering work placements and training to local people. They are responsible for the plans – draft so far – to change Apex House into a 22-storey tower block – see several posts here, search Apex. The final plans are due to be submitted to the Planning Committee and published on the Planning Portal, any day now.
“Members of the practice will be discussing the lessons learnt since the studio opened in January 2015, the ways in which JM+P are trying to make a difference in Tottenham and how they have so far positively affected the local community and how they will continue to engage with the area in the future.”
“The Evolution of the N17 Studio Initiative” is on show on Thursday 25th June, 6.30pm to 8pm. The event is free but spaces are limited, so please book your ticket here (external link). Do tell them how well they are positively affecting the local community – or otherwise.
