Stanton Williams' King's Cross Square opens

  • Comment

Stanton Williams’ 7,000m² revamp of King’s Cross Square in London has opened to the public

The £6 million scheme, which replaces a 1970s concourse, allows the public uninterrupted views of the Victorian Grade I-listed Kings Cross station façade.

Stanton Williams beat Gehl Architects, Gustafson Porter and Gross Max to win the public realm scheme, which is part of John McAslan’s wider £550 million redevelopment of the station, in 2010 (see AJ 19.04.2010).

King’s Cross Square – factfile:

  • 7,000m² - ‘big enough to accommodate Big Ben clock tower laid down lengthways’
  • Includes two improved entrances to London Underground
  • Adds two new shops
  • An area dedicated to public art – details of a high profile installation to be announced soon
  • Adds 19 new trees
  • Includes Solid granite benches
  • Incorporates new lighting scheme
