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 three elegant residential towers. The staggered balconies provide much needed amenity space for the residences and break the scale of the three 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 reusing 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.
