Civic Trust Award for Chobham Academy

College Green Croydon
Following KLA’s work on the public realm and landscape for the Fairfield Masterplan in Croydon, KLA have developed detailed public realm design for College Green. The 1960’s urban landscape has been characterised by it’s users; predominantly College students and Croydon’s well renowned Skateboarding community. The proposal is to deliver a huge in situ concrete space with high quality finishes to accommodate user’s needs.

Walthamstow Wetlands Planning permission granted
Planning permission is now in place – the project is a step closer to opening up this key missing link, connecting up the green spaces of the Lea Valley.
