Sheppard Robson unveils multicoloured Croydon scheme - images

  • Comment
Sheppard Robson has submitted this 15-storey mixed-use development for planning in Croydon, south London.

The 26,000m2 scheme is to sit opposite East Croydon station and will provide new retail and office space to the area while acting as a visual link to proposed work on the Gateway site to the north, and Fairfields in the south.

Located on an island site, the building's uniform facade will, says the practice, act as a 'visual pivot' towards the train station and the new building's entrance.

Opaque and clear glazed panels will be used to give the building an identity while reducing solar gain.

The project, backed by developer Terrace Hill, will be at the centre of new landscaping proposals which will create a new public plaza as well as a pedestrian thoroughfare, opening the space up to the public and linking the scheme to future developments in the area.

Once planning is granted the practice hopes to complete the project by mid 2009.
