The iconic London landmark King’s Cross Station has been transformed by John McAslan + Partners, providing an impressive gateway to the city in time for this summer’s Olympic Games.

Three different styles of architecture were involved in the £547m redevelopment: re-use, restoration and new build. The train shed and range buildings have been adapted and re-used, the Grade I listed façade has been restored, and an incredible Western Concourse (Europe’s largest single span station structure) has been designed as the project’s centrepiece.
