Cricklewood High Street London

Cricklewood High Street London

An Outer London Fund (OLF) project delivering building and street improvements to Cricklewood's high street, as well as a wider public realm strategy.

Client: London Borough of Brent
Project Status: Completed
Budget: £600,000

In January 2012, Barnet Council was awarded a grant from the Greater London Authority (GLA) through the Outer London Fund (OLF), to support Cricklewood in becoming a more cohesive, accessible and thriving local town centre. Cricklewood is a fascinating area of London, politically divided by three separate council boundaries, whilst also being along one of London’s most important arterial roads, the A5.

Gort Scott was appointed in August 2012 to lead a large multi-disciplinary Design Team including Polimekanos Graphic Designers, Haberdashery London Lighting Designers and Spacemakers Agency. The team delivered shop fronts and building improvements, shop forecourts, shop window displays, site activation, new festive lighting, graphic identity and community website.

Gort Scott also collaborated with Robin Lee and East who led a process of improvements to the highways and have contributed to a design charter that will form a blueprint for future public realm interventions in Cricklewood.

This project has involved a high degree of consultation, both formal (meetings with officers from the three boroughs, the GLA and other Stakeholders), as well as informal, time spent on the ground ensuring that the local businesses and community are involved in the project.
