Highbury Square transforms an early and important example of a British football stadium, previously the home of Arsenal Football Club, into a residential community. It preserves the nature and memory of the original arena while developing a new residential typology which contributes to the rich, local grain of streets, avenues and squares.
The original East and West stands are converted into apartments with a new central garden set between them. New residential blocks replace the North and South stands. This unique example of urban infill creates a contemporary London square, complemented by a series of new and smaller residential courtyards which connect back into the garden through large portal gates.
