Located in the Borough of Islington, The Mall Antiques Arcade is currently used as a retail unit. Originally the building housed trams used for the first tramline which opened in Islington in 1871. It is located next to camden passage which runs off Upper Street.
The concept developed from camden passage, a pedestrian passage running off Upper Street and boardering the arcade. The passage is known for its many antique shops. After looking at the antique shops I was reminded of beautiful antique furniture often found in old country homes and began looking at the countryside. I wanted to create a peaceful and calming atmosphere that represents the rolling hills of the country and merge it with the busy urban environment of the city.
