Northway House

Barnet, North London
Redrow London

We have recently secured the installation of the Schueco Curtain walling, Stone Rainscreen Cladding, ACM panel soffits and SFS for Durkan Limited who have been contracted by Redrow London to deliver 145 new homes to the Totteridge & Whetstone area of North London.

Northway house was originally constructed as an office block within the 1970s, Redrow acquired the site in July 2012. When works commenced on site in April this year, Durkan had to strip back the existing building taking it to its bare structure. We are due to start on site with the SFS installation from August 2015 where we have a 30+ week contract to complete our faade elements.

The refurbishment is complimented with a restrained, new brick built block to the rear. The proposals optimise the severely sloping site with a building which steps down the slope of the site, almost 10m overall, and conceals car parking at the lowest part, where the existing parking is located. This new building is a courtyard, with open aspect to the south so that new residents can enjoy a tranquil sunlit amenity space throughout the year.

The scheme is mixed use, new workspace and retail space onto the street provide activity at ground floor level, whilst above the residential development offers surveillance of the public realm. Carefully organised access encourages cars to access parking on the existing northern side of the building, whilst courtyard residential entrances are reached form a generous promenade on the southern side of the block.
