PEAK Munich

PEAK´s architectural redesign and the conceptual idea result from the necessity to revitalise an empty office building. The design consciously avoids copying the existing architecture. The façade elements, the landscape architecture and the expressive design of the lobbies represent stylistic inconsistency nevertheless corresponding as a whole with the original building.   This project is based on the intriguing concept that existing and new architecture can be intelligently combined with each other. Here, the concept of revitalising this office building through structural and design elements has been implemented in a sensitive fashion and with a fine sense of aesthetics.   PEAK – a combination of new and ex...

St Pancras International Station

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 pen...
