We Made That have been appointed by Haringey Council alongside artwork curators Up Projects and lighting designers Studio Dekka for the design and delivery of public realm improvements to Penstock Tunnel in Wood Green. The tunnel runs under the Great North Eastern Railway line and forms a strategic link connecting Wood Green town centre and Cultural Quarter with Alexandra Palace and Park and Hornsey to the west.
The proposals will seek to create better connections between the east and west of the borough with improvements including drainage, wayfinding, lighting and landscaping, along with an integrated artwork commission. The project is part of the wider Connecting Wood Green programme supported by the Greater London Authority’s Good Growth Fund.
The project will be rooted in a public and stakeholder engagement programme and we have recently completed a series of walking workshops to gain valuable feedback on the existing conditions and future aspirations of the site from local residents, organisations and businesses.
