contributed by davidb

King's Cross station, designed by Lewis Cubitt, was opened in 1852. It has a simple plan with a functional but powerful facade to Euston Road. However the design lacked the facilities (chiefly a concourse) and capacity to deal with modern passenger demands. McAslan's new scheme is the latest attempt to deal with these shortcomings. The biggest constraint upon the proposed site was the listed Great Northern Hotel on Pancras Road. Yet its arced footprint seems to have generated the semi-circular plan of the new concourse, which contains links to the underground network, retail/refreshment facilities and a new footbridge connection to the platforms. The most striking feature is the building's structure, which is clearly expressed inside. A latice framework, supported on 16 perimeter columns, swoops dramatically up and then down to the floor outside the old ticket hall. The project also included a major refurbishment of Cubitt's original buildings and train shed.
