Print-friendly version of this page Hampstead Garden Suburb is a suburb, north of Hampstead, west of Highgate, and east of Golders Green. It is an example of early twentieth-century domestic architecture and town planning located in the London Borough of Barnet in northwest London.
Corringham Road is a manifestation of designer Raymond Unwin’s later ’Georgian’ phase.
Dark brick houses, built by Parker and Unwin round a series of open-sided courtyards. It was the first local road to realise the coming of the motor car and a large block of garages (now demolished) was built here.
The street leads from the busy Finchley Road
to the serenity of the Heath extension. The housing reflects this, with symmetrical groups of semi-detached houses near to Finchley Road
, and formal courtyard compositions close to the Heath providing a transition to the large houses of Hampstead Way

The master plan was prepared by Barry Parker and Sir Raymond Unwin.
