St Pancras International Station, Redevelopment

Pascall+Watson as Architects

The award-winning redevelopment of St Pancras International has transformed it in to an iconic gateway to Europe.

 

The selection of the Grade 1 listed St Pancras railway station as the new terminus for Eurostar required a highly complex programme of expansion, modernisation and restoration.

 

To accommodate the sleek new trains, the station was doubled in length; the concourses being extended well beyond the intricate structure of the listed Barlow Shed roof. A contemporary, minimalist ‘floating’ canopy was introduced to protect the extended platforms, creating an intriguing contrast between the old and the new.

 

A series of light wells were punched through the platform decks to enable natural light to penetrate the lower concourse retail levels and to open up views to the original gothic architecture above.

 

The successful integration of the main station with the new Eurostar terminus, Midland Mainline, Thameslink, London Underground and adjacent King’s Cross Station’s has created a coherent transport hub, currently serving around 30 million passengers a year.

 

The RIBA award-winning project has become the catalyst for the significant redevelopment and investment into the surrounding area.
