Croydon approves major refurbishment and redevelopment scheme

  • Comment
Bryden Wood Associates has won planning permission for this 189-apartment scheme in Croydon town centre.

The practice - which is known as an off-site manufacture specialist - will refurbish, reclad and extend the upper storeys of a vacant office building, Lennig House on Mason's Avenue.

The plans include a new set of five mews houses constructed within the curtilage of the main building, set among three landscaped gardens, 94 parking spaces at ground and basement levels, and a new community and retail unit.

The external envelope comprises a series of rhythmic bands of white metal panels set between full-height glazing. The three flanking facades will be clad in dark grey/silver terracotta.

'The quality of the architecture was very well received by the committee and helped to overcome reservations regarding the additional height and very high density of the scheme,' Paul O'Neill of Bryden Wood Associates said.

'This is great example of how design-led development can achieve the most efficient use of a brownfield site,' he added.
