McAslan to 'embed' office in Tottenham's main street

John McAslan + Partners is set to open a studio in Tottenham, in a move which will see the practice providing apprenticeships to local students

The company is taking over a disused shop on Tottenham High Road, close to where the London riots started in 2011, in a joint venture with Haringey Council as part of its efforts to regenerate the area.

The council has taken a five-year lease on the property and provided £186,000 to renovate the site, which will also contain a walk-in exhibition of plans for Tottenham’s regeneration.

Aidan Potter, board director at John McAslan + Partners said: ‘The site is only 30 minutes from our office in central London, but it’s like another world. There has also been a lot of debate recently over what to do with the high street. Here, our architects will be on a typical high street in an area of massive change.’

The practice will offer placements to students from the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London, with two apprentices at a time, each for a six-month period and paid the national minimum wage. The practice will also take on up to five work experience candidates at any time for five-day placements. Students will learn CGI, model-making, studio management and design skills.
