Practice statement: King’s Cross is an important location for the white van economy and the huge amount of logistics needed to supply London with its desires and ‘just-in-time’ perishables. Stacking these present uses in the zone of slippage between the railway lines and Camley Street encloses them within proper, mixed urban fabric, making a safe route between King’s Cross and Camden Road Station.

As well as extending Camden’s urban grain, we’ve brought to this space a remade St Pancras Hospital, the Camley Street Natural Park and a new world around St Pancras Lock. The scale of the infrastructure and strange level shifts across the site result in large areas of ‘trapped nature’ – we propose to unify these spaces into a wild reserve, or a resource for power production to support a low-carbon white van fleet.
