Planning has been approved to redevelop the existing Croydon College Site.
ECE’s plans on behalf of Stonegate Homes will see the demolition of the Croydon College Annex building and the construction of a 12-storey building with 93 bespoke apartments and two storeys of commercial enterprise space. This will provide a new pedestrian link from College Green to Barclay Road.
The site is situated on Fairfield Gardens, part of the area outlined within the Fairfield Garden Masterplan produced in 2012. Excellent public transport links and proximity to Croydon town centre make the site an appropriate location for the residential development.
ECE worked closely with the planning officers to ensure a design response that contributed positively to the masterplan, maximising development potential and minimising impact on the existing Fairfield Halls.
The design response respects the existing materiality and architectural iconography, drawing on the many brutalist examples within Croydon.Share this
