Award-winning architects draw up blueprint for affordable homes on Bishops Avenue site known for its array of abandoned mansions
It is one of Britain’s most expensive streets, earning the moniker “Billionaire’s Row”. Yet The Bishops Avenue in north London also has areas of dilapidation, with mansions there having been left derelict for decades.
Now, Britain’s leading architects have drawn up a blueprint for building hundreds of affordable homes on the avenue. According to designs drawn up by firms including Mae, which last month won the Stirling prize, the UK’s most prestigious architecture award, there is room for up to 300 homes on one particular site.
