Thornton Heath building front improvement & flank wall graphics project
Croydon Shopfront & Heritage Building Restorations
YOU&ME were appointed by Croydon Council as lead consultants for the £0.7million Thornton Heath Building Front Improvement & Flank Wall Graphics Project, working in collaboration with Daisy Froud (community engagement expert) and James Dixon (public archaeologist).
The project sees around 30 shopfronts improved in the area, as well building frontage improvements and high level artwork murals, alongside the Council’s public realm regeneration scheme. The renovation works focus on parades of architectural value, located strategically near key nodes to create maximum impact.
YOU&ME worked with four artists with local connections (Philip Dennis, Ben Connors, Mat Pringle & Snapshot Collective) on flank wall mural artworks which take cues from community engagement themes and narratives.
