A public exhibition, which shows various images of the new Crossrail Stations on the central section of the line, has now opened at The Building Centre in London. The Exhibition is open until the 8th of December, and is worth a look for those finding themselves in the area. There is no entry charge. For those unable to make the trip, I’ve catalogued the images on display onto the following posts: Crossrail Designs: Tottenham Court RoadCrossrail Designs: Bond StreetCrossrail Designs: ...
Design Team: Scot Wilson / Weston Williamson / Gillespies The station largely sits under Eastbourne Terrace and Departures Road and the design is intended to be open and “pedestrian friendly.”
Design Team: WSP / John McAslan & Partners Bond Street will have two ticket halls and, as can be seen, a colonade effect. Enigmatically, according to the design factsheets, it will also have “technology walls” although what precisely these actually are is not divulged.
Design Team: Arup Atkins / Hawkins Brown Some of these we’ve seen before. The Western Ticket Hall (on Dean Street) is apparently intended to represent an obvious focal point when coming out of Soho, through the use of open spaces and lighting. The design also looks to make a decent public space at the foot of Centre Point. Interestingly, it appears that the internal fit-out of the two ticket halls the station contains will be slightly different visually – the eastern will carry white ...
Design Team: Scott Wilson / Aedas / Burns & Nice According to the design team: The design approach has sought to celebrate the industries and crafts that have defined Farringdon over the years, from the ironmongers of Aldersgate in the east, to the jewellers of Hatton Garden I will leave readers to decide whether they appear to have achieved this. Whatever the design, Farringdon will represent a major transport hub once Crossrail is completed, sitting on both a major East/West transport ...
Design team: Mott Macdonald / Wilkinson Eyre / Urban Initiatives The diagram below, taken from our post last year, gives an idea of the spread of the new Liverpool Street Crossrail Station. The images below that are those released today.
Design Team: Arup Atkins, Allies & Morrison Interestingly, Custom House is the only Crossrail Station on the central section that’ll have surface-level platforms.
Design Team: Canary Wharf Group / Arup / Foster & Partners / Adamsons Associates / Gillespies As the first image (which is one of my favourite of this round of Crossrail images) clearly shows, the Canary Wharf Crossrail design is intended to suggest a docked ship. The station will comprise a station box with an oversite development, complete with roof garden.
Design Team: Hyder, BDP One of the major features of the Whitechapel design is the “station bridge” this was visible in our earlier Whitechapel post as well, the images from which I have also included here. Access to the station will be via a single entrance within the (remodelled) current entrance, and the walkway is intended to act as a new pedestrian route between Whitechapel High Street and the communities to the north.
