High Street Kensington Station

  • Comment

John McAslan & Partners was commissioned by London Underground in 1998 to produce a feasibility study to assess the development of congestion- relief strategies within the existing station, while ensuring operational continuity is maintained throughout the period of construction. Since then the project has developed into an architectural commission with short- , medium- and long-term strategies identified for the remodelling of the station. These will address current and anticipated future overcrowding issues, while enhancing customer and staff environments, operational efficiency and historical architectural elements. Central to the long-term strategy will be the design of a new vaulted steel-and-glass roof over the platforms, interpretative of the former Victorian roof structure.
