Upper Norwood House, Croydon

Proposals for the overhaul and expansion of an Arts & Crafts influenced house in Upper Norwood, South London.

The architecture is Arts & Crafts influenced and more closely related to its rural cousins in Kent and Sussex than suburban London Borough of Croydon. An idealised view of an aspirational rural idyll.

The design proposals take inspiration from these traditional materials and arts and craft forms. As ideas developed and the brief honed, the design went through a number of iterations to arrive in its current incarnation.
