Colourful Accents: Creative District in the North of London
Eight small wooden houses have been erected in the yard. Each one is a different colour and was designed in order to enable the simplest possible construction. Every little house has two storeys for sales and storage; all offer inexpensive space where start-ups and smaller studios can display and sell their products and other wares.
The ensemble is rounded out by a typical London double-decker bus in which a café invites visitors to stay a while and a taxi stand which continues the style of the little wooden houses.
The yard has enough space for events and a regular market. The project was realized with the help of many volunteers and the active participation of the tenants of the workshops. This has made it affordable for the community; it also serves as an example of how participation brings people together and strengthens a community.
