The Crescent

Evolving New Barnet

My vision for suburbia is to connect the community together at different scales which are all interwoven to create a safe and stimulating environment. It should improve the wellbeing and living standards of the residents. On a smaller scale, each unit should have access to a communal green space which is lost in cities.

The new scheme in New Barnet will promote a feeling of home and create an oasis as well as connecting the surroundings suburbs. The new transport links will increase demand for New Barnet. The aim is to bring all ages together, joining where the existing infrastructure may not, to establish connectivity and a collaborative way of living. Density has been increased with five different housing types, including three within the Crescent. The other two typologies are shop- houses and low density housing along the river.
