An eight-unit residential development near south Croydon station aims to respond to urban context while augmenting Croydon’s attractiveness as a place to live and work. It acts as an interface between different scales of surrounding development and a busy corner junction, while increasing density. Contemporary detailing in textured buff brick and stone contrast with a dark brick, referencing the flint materiality of an adjacent Gilbert Scott church. Large recessed openings create a depth of elevation. Ground-floor residences access a shared garden while upper apartments include private terraces. Adaptable ground-floor units and a ramp-free approach address a range of accessibility needs.
