The £12 million design and build scheme, awarded to main contractor ISG, was designed by architects Nightingale Associates.Now complete, the building’s glazed rotunda forms the gateway to Croydon College’s Fairfield campus.
The rotunda incorporates a double-height space below ground level, which houses drama studios and music practice rooms. The upper levels provide light and spacious circulation areas with glazed walkways and two panoramic lifts providing access to upper levels in the main college building.
To provide navigation around the six-storey building, the glazed walkways and glazed floor in the central atrium are colour coded. Each floor has its own colour, providing visitors with an easy way of locating which floor of the building they are on.
The glass floors, walkways and balustrading were designed, fabricated and installed by OAG.
