St George's House
This project reuses, recycles and reinvents this important landmark office tower in the London Borough of Croydon. The existing monolithic building has been refined into 3 elegant residential towers. The staggered balconies provide much needed amenity space for the residences and break the scale of the 3 towers, creating an appearance more suitable to a residential development.
Formerly the Néstle UK & Ireland Headquarters, the building is being transformed into a collection of 288 contemporary apartments, retail space and amenity areas. St George’s House will provide Croydon with a stunning new building in a prime central location with exceptional transport connections. The scheme forms part of the Mid Croydon Masterplan and is intended to act as a catalyst for the much-needed regeneration of the area.
From the outset we established that re-using the building’s existing frame and adding additional floors was a sustainable approach, reducing the embodied energy that would be required for a complete new build.
Green roofs will create a biodiverse environment alongside high quality landscaping and improvement to the public realm, contributing to the wellbeing of the residents and general public.
