Stanton Williams win King's Cross Station design competition

Stanton Williams, a London-based architecture firm, has won an international design competition to design a £6m, 7,000 sq m public space at London’s King’s Cross Station. The project is part of Network Rail’s extensive redevelopment of the site, estimated to cost around £500m. A competition was launched in June 2008 by Camden Council and Network Rail in association with RIBA Competitions Office to find an architecture company to design a new urban square for the site. Stanton Williams beat off competition from more than 100 other architects and urban designers to claim the contract. The original station was opened in 1852 and now serves 100,000 commuters, visitors and residents on a daily basis. Alan Stanton, of Stanton Williams, said: "We are very excited to have been selected to work on this project at the heart of the city. This is a unique opportunity to create a new public square as part of one of London's busiest transport interchanges." The project is set to be completed in 2013.

Information on the competition was previously posted on WAN and can be viewed here.
