Project Info

Chapman Taylor designed the integration of shops, cafes and bars into the new two-level concourse areas of this 1868 Grade 1 listed building.

The shops occupy the undercroft, formerly a Victorian beer store, opening up the floor level above to bring in natural light and increase visibility. The design creates high-quality station retail, sensitively integrated with the historic building fabric. The original exposed brick arches to the vaults are retained inside the shops to create a timeless design. The cafes and bars are on the main concourse level.

Chapman Taylor also proposed the design standards for all commercial signage and retail fascias as part of the approvals to be obtained from English Heritage and Camden Council.
