Quest House falls within the Croydon Vision 2020 regeneration programme. This existing 1970′s office building is 6-7 storeys high and clad in concrete. Our scheme extends and over-clads the building in limestone rainscreen cladding and cream brickwork, and structural solid oak balconies articulate the previously flat façade. Materials were chosen for their tactile qualities and natural colours, applying a ‘residential’ language. Generous existing floor to ceiling heights create airy and spacious homes, with carefully considered internal layouts to ensure successful integration of the existing structural grid and columns. The top floor duplex units are dual aspect, enjoying fantastic views.
