From the architect. The original Arundel Square was never completed. After three sides were finished the Victorian developer ran out of money and the North London Line was constructed in a cutting on the south side of the central gardens.

In our radical approach we have decked over the railway, creating an extra acre of land. Half of this land has been added to Arundel Square Gardens, and on the remainder we have completed the square with a contemporary six-storey apartment building. Its layered façade has been designed to harmonise with its surroundings, taking its framed proportions from the brick pilasters and sash windows of the existing houses.

The project creates funds for the regeneration of the public gardens by Islington Council and also for the restoration of an adjacent terrace of 18 houses.
