British Design Awards – King’s Cross Station

Kings Cross Station Renovation

It’s time for the British Design Awards (BDAs), brought to us by ELLE Decoration in association with John Lewis and our the Telegraph magazine. The BDAs recognise useful, beautiful and original new work by British designers for UK and international brands. We think it’s a good opportunity to talk about some of the great design that was made this year in Great Britain.

This week we will view some of the winders of the award, ranging from the Olympics, to Stations, Wallpapers, “multi-purpose pods” and lighting design.

John McAslan + Partners came in third in these awards with their renovation of King’s Cross Station.

According to ELLE Decoration and their readers, the renovation of King’s Cross Station is staggering, and it’s easy to see why. John McAslan + Partners transformed Kin “what was a dingy, overcrowded space into a cathedral of light.”

‘We took our cue from the station’s magnificent train shed by Lewis Cubitt, which celebrates Victorian engineering and the expression of steam technology,’ explains architect John McAslan, who oversaw the project alongside director Hiro Aso.

It is now a 19th century monument truly brought to the modern London.
