Green Dragon House, Croydon
Perfectly located in the heart of Croydon, Green Dragon House has been transformed to 119 one and two bedroom luxury apartments.
Green Dragon House has won an award for the ‘Most Innovative Redevelopment of an Existing Building’.
The Original building ‘Canius House’ was built in the 1980’s as a state of the art office building for central Croydon business centre.
The scheme consisted of designing a vertical two storey extension to the front section of the building supported on a steelwork transfer structure, on top of the four storey section of building.
No strengthening of existing foundations was required and the two storey extension was designed as a structural steelwork frame with infill Metsec framing, glazing and cantilevered balconies.
The rear section of building is a nine storey tower over basement car parking.
A new tenth floor ‘sky garden’ is designed over the existing flat roof with new structural steelwork transfer frame. The building has been used on one elevation as a canvas for eminent international street artist Ben Eine.
