PRP Studio
London

At a site diagonally opposite East Croydon Station, where the developer’s ambitions had been frustrated, PRP split the volume of the consented scheme and produced a dramatic design for two angled wings of residential accommodation - one block of 31 storeys, the other of 16 - linked at ground floor with a concierge area, café and gym and four commercial units. Combined, the buildings house 320 apartments, including an element of private rental.

The design embraces family accommodation by distributing three-bedroom dwellings evenly throughout. Imaginative landscape design uses trees and shrubs to reduce the buildings’ urban scale and impact.
