AROS Architects have gained full planning consent for a new prominent office building 

28-30 Addiscombe Grove will be situated opposite East Croydon station and adjacent to the NLA Tower at No. 1 Croydon. The building joins a growing number of landmark developments contributing to Croydon's 'Third City' of London plans and the Vision 2020 regeneration, including the Croydon Gateway. The 50,000 sq ft scheme for Berwick Hill Properties has a dramatic cantilever over the main entrance creating a prominent geometry when seen from the roundabout.

The building's richly textured cladding uses stainless-steel mesh panels for solar protection and privacy mediation with immediate neighbours. Return panels are clad in mesh to absorb light, forming dark shadows to accentuate contrast to the reflective flanks. The building has achieved a BREEAM Excellent rating, and utilises integral, surface-printed glass Photovoltaic panels on the south facade, contributing towards the use of on-site renewable energy production to meet the 10% target. A green roof helps reduce urban heat island effect; moderates storm water run-off, and provides ecology.

The cladding integrates colour change LED technology, illuminating the mesh panels as part of Croydon's Skyline cityscape lighting scheme.
