FOA and Allies and Morrison to overhaul Euston station

Foreign Office Architects (FOA) and Allies and Morrison will work together on the £1 billion regeneration of Euston Station in London.

British Land and Network Rail announced yesterday (14 April) that Allies and Morrison has been appointed as masterplan architect for the regeneration of the 6ha area around the station.

FOA will redevelop the station itself, which last saw major investment in the 1960s, and the practice hopes to increase capacity to match future demand.

The overall scheme will provide more than 300,000m2 of mixed-use space, including residential, commercial and retail elements.

Back in 2007, US-based practice Leo A Daly won a competition to revamp the station, but lost the scheme when project architect Larry Oltmanns left to set up his own firm, V3, last May.

Oltmanns and V3 remain involved in the scheme, although it is unclear in what capacity.

British Land’s head of development, Nigel Webb, said: 'We are excited to be entering the next phase for the regeneration of Euston with this inspirational design team. Foreign Office Architects and Allies and Morrison have the combination of creative flair, experience and rigour to take forward a 21st-century design for Euston Station and the surrounding area.’

British Land hopes to submit a planning application by early 2010, with work starting in 2011.
