Northwood Hall is a privately-owned Art Deco block of 194 one- to three-bedroom flats situated towards the west end of Highgate's Hornsey Lane. 


It was built in 1935 by Richard Costain Limited and designed by architect George Edward Bright.

With panoramic views to the south over the city of London, from Battersea Power Station to Canary Wharf, Northwood Hall is itself a prominent landmark, and can be seen from Highbury to Hampstead Heath and Alexandra Palace.


The Northwood Hall Residents' Association has for many years worked to promote the interests of its members, both owners and tenants alike, in particular regarding the management and maintenance of the building and its surroundings. Mindful of the size of the community at Northwood Hall, the RA is also keen to offer advice and support to all new residents.


The NWH RA has always acted independently of the freeholder and manager. However, in November 2016 it was derecognised by the manager and replaced by the Northwood Hall Leaseholders' Group (NWHLG).

Because of the NWHLG's open support of both the management and freeholder, the RA is concerned that the best interests of Northwood Hall residents are no longer being served.

The NWH RA has therefore decided to renew its activities, in order to protect the rights, interests and quality of life of all residents at Northwood Hall.
