Stonegrove Community Centre: A Building Study
12.8.2017

Ridge was delighted to be involved in the redevelopment of Stonegrove Community Centre in North London by providing Project Management, Quantity Surveying and Employer Agent services.

The £4.2 million building provides a modern community facility in Edgeware North London is home to St Peters Church, a cafe and nursery whilst boasting wonderful facilities. It acts as the hub for a 1,000-home regeneration replacing a 1960’s community church that had fallen into disrepair. The design deliberately pays homage to the previous building while providing the community with a new, adaptable facility.

Previously, St Peter’s square sat neglected at the southern corner of Stonegrove, with the community spaces loosely at its centre. Around them stood 603 housing units spread across 11-storey towers and four-storey maisonette blocks which appeared somewhat stranded amid the rows of suburban housing that edge up against the green belt.

With a chapel, community spaces, nursery, cafe and more, this redevelopment is intended to act as the heart of the new Stonegrove and Spur Road Estates, replacing blocks of council housing that are the latest subjects of the London Borough of Barnet’s extensive development programme.

Residents’ Statement

“Our community’s new building is modern, light and airy. It gives the sense of lots of pen space and feels very welcoming. It draws the whole community together and feels like it is the new heart of the Stonegrove Estate by offering facilities for people both young and old and from all backgrounds and religions” – Angela Gibson.
