Located on a very prominent site in Purley Town centre, set within the London Borough of Croydon.
The scheme combines five separate sites, facing south towards the town centre, the new scheme will be a new landmark building for Purley.
The multi-tonal red brick palette produces three unique buildings which share a collective character. Horizontal banding further emphasizes the bold geometry, inspired by architectural detailing of historic buildings within Purley. Intricate patterning incorporated within metal detailing is informed by hanging tiles found on the fine suburban homes in the area.
The design of the homes is highly sustainable and exceeds Part L (building performance envelope and air permeability) by 69%, through the sensitive placement of windows and site orientation. The bold hexagonal geometric forms of the blocks are grounded in the steep topography of the site, knitted in by a terraced landscape that sits at the heart of the scheme and incorporates natural play.
The scheme has achieved planning permission.
