West 8 Named as Finalist in Croydon Fair Field Competition

West 8, together with our competition team featuring Periscope, Expedition Engineering, Donald Hyslop and Michael Grubb Studio, has been named as one of six shortlisted teams selected to design a world-class, exemplary public space surrounding Croydon’s historic Fairfield Halls.

Croydon Council launched the international, competitive tender process in December 2018. The project, scheduled to complete in 2022, sits alongside plans to transform the wider area into a new cultural quarter.

The winning team will design a bold and innovative proposal to create one of the most exciting public spaces in London. Proposals are expected to feature lighting, public art and water, to improve accessibility and to celebrate the culture and history of Croydon.
