Crossrail Designs: Tottenham Court Road


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 composite panels whilst the western will be clad in black glass and steel.
