King's Cross

John McAslan + Partners

The transformation of King's Cross Station creates a remarkable dialogue between Cubitt's original 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. At the heart of the scheme is the visually striking new concourse; at 7,500 sqm it is triple the size of its predecessor and is now the 'beating heart' of the multimodal transport hub, linking St Pancras Station, Thameslink services, London Underground, taxis and bus services.
