Completed in March 201, the redevelopment of the Grade I listed King’s Cross Station has remodelled the station to improve its passenger facilities, rationalise operational activities and increase retail opportunities.
The complex £550m redevelopment project required a series of interventions involving three different areas of architectural specialism: re-use, restoration and new build.
The train-shed and range buildings have been adapted and re-used, the station’s previously obscured Grade I listed façade restored, and a new, visually striking Western Concourse has been designed as the centrepiece of the project. The Eastern Range was completed in advance of the main contract to allow for the temporary relocation of station staff.
