Located in South Norwood, Croydon, this back-land development for Brick By Brick will deliver 9 affordable new homes on an under-used garage site. Set behind an existing 3-storey, post-war block owned by the local-authority the development will revitalise the existing outdoor space to create a better and more convivial place to live for all residents.
The new accommodation is arranged as a 3-storey, linear block set parallel to the existing homes. This arrangement creates a new, shared green space between the buildings that will help activate the centre of the estate, benefitting both the new and current residents that live there. New and existing ground-floor homes are accessed off this new amenity, creating an active and social space.
