King's Cross Station
The redevelopment of the Grade I listed King's Cross Station is almost complete, with the demolition of the old concourse and construction of the new Southern Square under way.  Major remodelling of the station has delivered improved passenger facilities, rationalised operational activities and significantly increased retail opportunities at the station. The practice has played a key role in the wider transformation of the King's Cross area - infrastructure, social and commercial changes now connect the station with the substantial King’s Cross Central scheme north of the station, as well as improved interchange links with the London Underground, St. Pancras Station, Thameslink services, taxis and buses.

This enormously complex £547m redevelopment project required a series of layered interventions involving three very 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 is being precisely restored, and a new, highly expressive and visually striking Western Concourse has been designed as the centrepiece and the 'beating heart' of the project.
 
Our ambitious transformation of the station creates a remarkable dialogue between Cubitt’s 1852 station and 21st-century architecture - a quantum shift in strategic infrastructure design in the UK. The station was officially opened by Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, on 19 March 2012. The multi-award winning station now provides a modern transport super-hub fit for a major capital city.
