DESIGNS ON KING'S CROSS

Richard Hywel Evans, Tom Foster, Dickon Hayward

Our proposal is about perception and scale.

A multi-faceted design that places fourstorey town houses for families facing on to [proposed] Cubitt Garden; the plan forms generally accepting the principles of the overall masterplan but hollowing out the core. On the eastern edge we designed a building that enjoys the curve and resulting energy of the site and sets up a strong kinetic rising form that connects King's Cross back to the City and is the highest point of our design, dropping down towards the park to ensure afternoon daylight. On top of the four-storey London plan snake dense linear forms, which straddle the blocks below: crash pads and studios for urban nomads and the first-time buyer, ats with views open on to high-level roof gardens. This collision of uses explodes into an orgy of forms, ashing sneak previews and surprise vistas, finding their own direction and constantly revealing different levels. Sit back and take it in - there's a lot to see, plus shops, a park and a nice beer garden on the corner.
