The landscape creates an inviting high quality public realm, part of a network of public routes and spaces linking to the wider context such as East Croydon Station, George street and Park Hill Park. New tree and shrub planting creates a welcoming green thoroughfare with seating and cycle route.
In the Mezzanine Garden raised planters, specimen trees and water features form a series of ‘rooms’ where residents and visitors can gather to socialise, relax and dine.
Balcony views give out on to College Road whilst the upper level roof terraces will offer outdoor lounges with stunning panoramic views across the city. These flexible spaces also offer opportunity for resident events and activities such as outdoor yoga.
External lighting is provided throughout to create a safe, usable and atmospheric space in the evenings. The whole scheme takes into consideration Croydon’s vision for more vibrant and active, pedestrian friendly spaces.
