PTEa to create range of residential units in former mental health hospital 

St Luke’s is a complex and sensitive site, set within one of the most attractive areas of North London - its northern boundary consists of fine Edwardian terraced houses and to the south lies Highgate Woods.

It housed an inpatient hospital for mental health patients from the mid-1920s, but has been largely unused since 2009. The site currently contains a nationally listed Grade 2 neo-Georgian administration building dating from the 1920s and two locally listed and now converted Victorian houses, as well as associated ancillary buildings and extensive gardens with mature trees.

On this site PTEa proposes to create an exemplary housing scheme of around 160 new mixed tenure homes within a carefully preserved and enhanced green setting. The team’s proposals will include substantial houses as well as apartments, with an emphasis on accommodation for the over-55s.

Hanover and PTEa are also working closely with the North London Sustainable Housing Partnership, a group of local residents who wish to develop a Passivhaus certified cohousing scheme, and part of the site will be used to create around 30 mixed tenure houses and flats which will share a garden and a community house.
