Planning permission for AHMM's Google Headquarters at King's Cross, London

Camden Council has given the green light for Google’s 1m sq ft building at King’s Cross in London, designed by AHMM with Davis Langdon as cost consultant. The project sits on a 1,000ft tapering plot almost parallel to the railway cutting and will feature buildings ranging from 6-10 storeys.

Three light-rich entrance halls will welcome workers to the building, of which there are said to be approximately 5,000. AHMM’s design sees a three-dimensional promenade looping along, through and upwards towards a generous roof terrace. Cycling ramps will be paramount to provide ‘an easy and enjoyable journey that encourages encounter’.

Architect AHMM director Simon Allford said: “The architectural approach, which has taken inspiration from King’s Cross and St Pancras International railway stations, complements the local area’s strong industrial heritage and will be a building London can be proud of.”
