Architect behind King's Cross development remains secret

This is the first glimpse of the new £400 million King's Cross station, but Network Rail is keeping the details of the architect behind the project under wraps.

A planning application has been submitted by Network Rail, but the landowner is remaining tight-lipped over who is behind the design of the project, despite releasing this image.

The revamp will increase the station concourse to three times its current size, and provide an additional platform, allowing the station to handle 70,000 mainline passengers a day.

The refurbishment will also keep the twin 'barrel' roof, one of the 154-year-old station's distinctive features.

The work, whoever it is by, is due for completion by 2011.
