We are super excited at Inspired Homes today as we officially unveil a new era of urban living to the world!
Over the past few months, our flagship Green Dragon House development in Croydon, which is home to over 100 affordable luxury one and two bedroom apartments with unique communal living spaces, has become the canvas of choice for a number of eminent international street artists including Ben Eine, Fuel and, directly opposite, Dotmaster. Ben Eine’s ‘Mesmerising’ mural adorns the 16-storey office-turned-apartment building in Croydon’s highly reputable art quarter, seen as the next Shoreditch in the capital’s art sector. In celebration of Croydon’s creative culture and specifically to coincide with the completion of Green Dragon House’s communal living spaces – which include a 10th floor sky garden with BBQ, air hockey and table tennis and first floor residents’ lounge with kitchen area, home cinema and pool table. An inspired art exhibition will be held at Green Dragon House in its new residents’ lounge.
The exhibition’s concept reflects the community sharing aspect of the development, a celebration that goes hand-in-hand with the street art and is the inspiration behind the Green Dragon Club Lounge, the brainchild of Martin and Magdalena Skinner with art curation by ATTOLLO Fine Art & RISE gallery.
The focus of the exhibition features local artists such as South London-born Ben Eine and Croydon-based Fuel where the artworks showcased inside of the building reflect the revolution on the outside. The inaugural show includes studio pieces, prints and originals by Banksy, Ben Eine, Snik, Pam Glew, Bob Carlos Clarke, Harper Deyong and Lauren Baker.
Artist Ben Eine has previously commented on his reasons for choosing Croydon to create his work. He says: “Street art has been instrumental in invigorating urban areas in cities, and areas like Croydon are starting to realise the positive benefits that creating a buzzing street art scene can bring to an area.”
As a leading Croydon property developer, we are renowned for creating innovative residential developments with a strong community ethos for first-time buyers. Its CEO Martin Skinner explains the reason behind his decision to engage in contemporary art and add to Croydon’s increasingly vibrant art scene:
“Croydon’s art quarter is continuing to build a serious reputation for credible art and Inspired Homes’ street art initiative centred around our flagship Green Dragon House development fits with our passion of integrating with the community and encouraging inspiring activity locally.
“As well as officially opening the inaugural club lounge exhibition, we’ll also be unveiling our own inspiring 10th-floor sky garden with seating areas, BBQ, table tennis and air hockey as well as jaw-dropping views; the ultimate in aspirational community living without the price tag of expensive city centre apartments.”
