Description


The transformation of King’s Cross Station creates a remarkable dialogue between Cubitt’s original 19th century station and 21st-century architecture. Opened to the public in March 2012, in advance of the 2012 London Olympics, King’s Cross is now an iconic architectural gateway to the capital. The scheme has restored Grade I listed historic fabric, and added the highly innovative new Concourse. At 7,500 sqm, it is three times the size of the original concourse and has become the ‘beating heart’ of this multi-modal transport hub, linking St Pancras Station, Thameslink services, London Underground, taxis and bus services, and accommodating up to 150,000 passengers daily through a spacious and dynamic multi-modal interchange. - John McAslan + Partners
