Taberner House

London, Croydon. 2018

  • Project Details
  • Completion: 2018
  • Clients: Hub Group and Bridges Fund Management

The site is located in central Croydon, opposite the Croydon Council offices and near to Croydon Town Hall. A key regeneration site, the scheme will provide space for retail, leisure and cultural activities, as well as bringing much-needed new homes and jobs to the area. The plans will also revitalise the popular Queen’s Gardens, which is to be reimagined by landscape architect Grant Associates, in close collaboration with interested local parties. The result will be a new public space which exceeds the area of the existing Queen’s Gardens. In line with HUB’s commitment to building strong communities, HUB facilitated extensive community engagement and public consultation which also includes working closely with members of the Croydon community to shape plans for The Queen’s Gardens. The scheme will deliver 513 new homes both for sale and for rent, 35 per cent of which will be delivered at a subsidised level.

Queen’s Gardens competition winner announced

AHMM architect Dora Felekou has won a competition to design a new café for Croydon as part of the AHMM-designed Taberner House development. The project’s client HUB launched the competition in July, challenging AHMM architects to design the café in response to community design workshops focusing on the Queen’s Gardens, which are adjacent to the Taberner House site and form part of the overall project. Eight shortlisted teams presented their designs to the client and local stakeholders to decide the winning entry. Dora’s ‘House of Cards’ entry was announced as the winner at an event held at AHMM’s London office, hosted by associate director Susie le Good and Steve Sanham, managing director at HUB.
