Click here for a series of events on re-imagining Norwood High Street throughout June as part of the London Festival of Architecture.
Station to Station is collaborating with local architects A Small Studio to explore the potential and power of Norwood High Street as a symbol of many similar London high streets currently in crisis. We believe Norwood High Street and its surrounds can be re-invented as a creative and cultural link between Brixton and Croydon. There are key sites available for affordable housing and developer-led projects, but we want to ensure the street level remains in use by and for the local people.
This potentially means affordable workspace, greening, pop-up venues, ecology walks, cafés, innovation hubs. We need to ensure local residents, businesses, artists, school-children, young people, freelancers, young families, SMEs and senior citizens have a high street that serves their needs. Working with the local community and in collaboration with Station to Station, the Business Improvement District for Tulse Hill and West Norwood, A Small Studio proposes a radical re-think of the use of this high street.
