Croydon Infill Sites

CROYDON- COMPLETED 2019

 

Winner: Housing Design Award (Project) 2018

Working as subconsultants to architects Mikhail Riches, BBUK designed the landscape surrounding new housing on three existing estates in Croydon. The first, Heathfield Road is adjacent to existing woodland and this borrowed landscape inspired new communal gardens that benefit both the existing and the 24 new residents on the estate.

We ensured all existing boundary trees were protected and new private and communal spaces were designed adjacent to the eight new homes at Faithful Court situated on a tight, steeply sloping site on Hermitage Road.

 

The third development at Drummond Road is a tight urban site for 23 new homes. Roof gardens provide amenity space for the new residents, and public realm improvements are incorporated around the new the building’s entrances.
