This mixed use development incorporates 23 new homes and the new head quarter offices of our Client - Croydon Churches Housing Association. Our analytical and contextual approach to the design evolved via the accumulation of a thorough understanding of the site and continual consultation with key stakeholders and the local authority.
Primary issues were:
quality of design, massing and scale, and the impact of the scheme on neighbouring properties and their amenities. The architectural solution is rooted in the traditions of the south Croydon vernacular and articulated so as to comfortably coexist alongside the smaller scale of its neighbours.
