Planning Consent for Legacy Buildings at Cane Hill Coulsdon

We are delighted to announce that Croydon Council has given planning consent for our proposals on behalf of Haxted Estates Ltd for the redevelopment of the legacy buildings at Cane Hill Coulsdon.  This project will see the preservation, re-imagination and sensitive refurbishment of three key legacy buildings which are all that survives of the much larger Cane Hill Hospital complex.  The rest of the Victorian hospital buildings were razed to enable the redevelopment of the site as the GLA’s largest current new-build housing project which is nearing completion and is already partially occupied.  The legacy buildings which comprise a chapel, a water tower and one wing of the administration building occupy pivotal locations around key areas of public realm within the development so their design received intense scrutiny not only from the planners but also from stakeholders including the GLA and housing developer Barratt Homes.  Each building presented its own particular set of challenges and merited its own unique design response, however a single, clear, philosophical approach to the existing fabric and new interventions has guided all design decisions resulting in a harmonious composition for the project.  Detailed design for construction is due to be instructed shortly.
