Dingwall Road, Croydon

The 181-apartment scheme for Telereal Trellium at 17-21 Dingwall Road in the heart of Croydon will consist of two blocks of 9 and 24 storeys that are linked by a private central garden for residents.

The development is one of a number of tall buildings that have either received planning or are under construction within the Croydon Metropolitan Centre and has been designed to respond to the mass of neighbouring buildings while reflecting the emerging architectural character along Dingwall Road.

The main tower responds to the stepped sequence of its neighbours with the creation of a ‘shoulder’ that provides a private sky garden for residents while also creating an elegant and memorable silhouette within the town’s emerging cityscape.

The glass reinforced concrete frame reflects the vertical structural rhythms of the modernist form seen in the local character while providing an appropriate expression to the emerging corporate environment along Dingwall Road.

The landscape vision is to create an exemplary residential led development where the external realm is an integral part of the overall design strategy. The sky terraces and central garden provide high quality amenity space that function as quiet, green retreats for all residents.

The façade concept for this development is a charcoal tone with a golden perforated material at ground level and on the balconies. This references the black and gold ‘Whitgift Cross’ on Croydon’s coat of arms as well as the fact Croydon was main charcoal producer for London in the 18th century. John Whitgift was a 16th Century Archibishop of Canterbury who held a summer residence in the town.

The double height residential lobby off Dingwall Road offers a window on to the central garden beyond, again referencing the historic Whitgift Palace that was accessed from the High Street through a high vaulted space and the decorative patterns and textures of the palace’s Great Hall are celebrated in the golden balcony design.
