New Windows on Willesden Green

New Windows on Willesden Green Project



On 17 and 18 December I attended the wonderful ‘New Windows on Willesden Green’ project, which was delivered for Brent Council and Design for London by The Architecture Foundation in collaboration with Meanwhile Space and Blue Consulting.

This was a brilliant project, attempting to revive and improve Willesden High Road. I felt it was a huge success and was very impressed by the creativity and innovation on show in the windows of the high street shops.


I was very pleased to be asked to announce the winners of the window animations, which were installed along Walm Lane and the High Road marking the 25 days leading up to Christmas. The names of the winners are below.

Local shopowners paired with emerging designers to produce an advent calendar of window displays in Willesden with a new Willesden window opening each day.



Please visit the website and see for yourself the inventiveness which was on display. You can also visit the Pilot Shop until March on the High Street if you are considering taking over one of the vacant shops on there.

Happy Christmas,

Navin Shah, Assembly Member for Brent and Harrow
