Bird Box Avenue
100 Artists’ Open Houses in Miniature
Discover a miniature neighbourhood co-existing alongside the hustle and bustle of Fore Street on the A1010. Standard housing stock (also known as bird boxes) has been renovated, re-furbished and re-imagined by artists and residents of Edmonton, Enfield and from fur ther afield. 100+ new homes and small businesses occupy surprising sites in the streetscape.
Find Bird Box Avenue as you are out and about in Fore Street, or refer to the Bird Box Avenue Directory to plan your tour. These miniature properties can be found all along Fore Street from the Florence Hayes Adventure Playground in Angel Edmonton to the little park at Edmonton Green Station. View them at Angel Place, Fore Street Estate, Regen House and in the shop windows of businesses too.
UPDATE: 19th May 2012
Bird Box Avenue expansion is complete and the collection has now been added to. You can download the 2nd edition of the Bird Box Avenue directory here with all the miniature homes and their locations.
