Information about this scheme

Dujardin Mews is the first council-led social housing delivered by Enfield in 40 years, forming the first phase of the Ponders End rebuilding programme and replacement homes for the nearby Alma Estate. The 38 unit development is a mix of 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes with entrance doors facing the street. Inspiration is drawn from the typical London street, creating a domestic and intimate character both externally and internally whilst promoting a sense of community, activity, passive surveillance and opportunities for neighbours to meet. The street’s western terrace consists mainly of two storey houses with a three storey portion to the north providing a mix of family houses, maisonettes and apartments with large back gardens. Glazed brick surrounds emphasise entrances and provide variety in colour and materiality. The eastern terrace is predominantly three storey courtyard houses with a small three storey apartment building to the south.  Its notched profile creates a varied streetscape and allows daylight into the street. Internal layouts exceed the London Housing Design Guide with generous spaces, substantial floor-to-floor heights, natural light and ventilation The scheme showcases how robust detailing, high quality materials and elegant design combined with a considered public realm and a collaborative process with an ambitious council and empowered residents can transform a difficult site with a restricted budget to create a new civic pride and exemplar sustainable housing for the Borough and community alike.
