The Fold

Croydon, C9

A one-of-a-kind creative residential hub for Croydon

Morrow + Lorraine have designed the communal spaces for The Fold, part of a major regeneration project on the site of the former Croydon Council Offices. It is one of four residential towers on the site now known as Queen’s Quarter, but is the only tower designated as ‘build to rent’.

The Fold presented a one-of-a-kind opportunity to design a creative residential hub for Croydon. The brief was to provide an enriched environment for future occupants including spaces to promote a sense of community and the sharing economy. Residents of all ages and from a wide variety of backgrounds were to be considered.

A collaborative approach was required to coordinate seamlessly within an already designed building shell by AHMM. We also worked closely with the clients HUB, L&G, and the contractor throughout the project.
