Greyfort House by OB Architecture
Completed in December 2019, Greyfort House is a residential development of eight units on a prominent corner plot in South Croydon. The challenge was to create a design that would successfully respond to the various urban conditions around the site. The building acts as an interface between the different scales and patterns of development surrounding it, whilst addressing the busy corner junction in a coherent and composed manner. Its form evolved through a contextual analysis of the scale, proportions, building lines, materials and architectural details of the surrounding streetscapes and was sculpted by the arising opportunities.
“It features aesthetically pleasing,good quality details, an overall great submission that sits well within the surrounding area contextual with the church. Well considered in decision making, with detail on the windows and balconies that all are well thought through and delivered. A beautifully considered design proposal, delivered in a strong submission with sound decision making from macro to micro.”
