Vertex, Croydon

Client: Durkan

Vertex is a 98 mixed tenure 1 to 3 bedroom apartment scheme with a high proportion of homes for private rent. The £20m PRS scheme is situated in a prominent location, close to Croydon Town Centre. The designs provide the development with a much needed active frontage at ground level and a lively urban identity. Overall the building stands at 13 storeys tall at its highest level, offering residents outstanding views across South London, stepping down in a cascading roof terrace formation to 9 storeys at its lowest point. The building’s staggered façade has been carefully proportioned to achieve a slender and elegant appearance with material treatment featuring terracotta cladding in a variety of shades, render, and metal cladding defining the building as a landmark.

As part of Croydon’s “Skyline” project, the building incorporates lighting on its uppermost levels to provide night time illumination.
