TOTTENHAM HALE PAVILION
Following the success of the London Borough of Haringey Committee approval for the Argent Related Tottenham Hale scheme, RUFFARCHITECTS are incredibly proud to announce their success in the invited competition to design the centre piece Pavilion for the project. This is a great opportunity to allow a tangible element of the masterplan to be delivered in the early stages, which both new and existing residents can benefit from.
RUFFARCHITECTS won the commission to design this key piece of regeneration work after competing against a shortlist of well recognised practices such as Jamie Fobert Architects, Asif Khan, Scullion Architects and Atomik Architecture.
The studio hopes that the pavilion will play a pivotal role in supporting the creation of an exciting new civic space at the very centre of this large regeneration project.
The Client’s brief called for a pavilion that would not only activate the square, but add interest
and character to it, and be the focus for the development’s iconic “postcard moment”.
Our Tottenham Hale Pavilion looks to provide a truly dynamic building that addresses the challenges of the site and the wider development brief. Our building looks to enclose the square, while providing a welcoming invitation to the passing public. This is not only a local wayfinding point, but acts as a wider draw to the developing Tottenham Hale area, a marker and a new identifier. The forms provide a clear navigational reference, with a glimpse into a new and inviting town square.
The Pavilion plot is centrally located to provide a key focal point. It provides a high quality landmark building, respecting and responding to the emerging buildings around Ferry Square, and helps establish new pedestrian and cycle routes through the sites. It will also become a destination and a draw to the area in its own right, and a symbol for Tottenham Hale.
