Stanton Williams' design for King's Cross Central college in London 

Stanton Williams’ design for the mixed use scheme responds to the raw beauty and industrial background of the Granary Building and its Transit Sheds, by drawing the height, scale and texture of the new College from the massing and grain of the Grade II listed structure. The College will be a light-filled contemporary building providing art and dance studios, office, theatre, exhibition space, bars, restaurants and a roof garden. At the heart of the College will be a top lit main ‘street’ over sailed by bridges, functioning as circulation space, meeting and exhibition area. Central Saint Martins will occupy the greater part of the King’s Cross Granary Complex. Granary Square will be a vibrant public space overlooking the Regent’s Canal, surrounded by cafes and restaurants and giving access to the retail and office units housed in the Western Transit Shed. King’s Cross Central is one of the most significant development and regeneration opportunities in London. It is being developed by Argent and owned by London and Continental Railways and DHL-Exel.
