The project comprised a phased programme of renovation and enhancement of the existing buildings and upgrading of accommodation, and improvements to customer services. This was achieved through the provision of a modernised ticket hall, a new information centre and signage, along with the expansion of customer friendly activities including the creation  of new glazed shop units, a waiting room and public facilities within the concourse. The design incorporates clear glazing and slender structures that follow the arched profiles of the historic brickwork enclosing walls allowing their mass and character to read clearly and provide a historic backdrop to the contemporary interventions. The character of the nineteenth century brick structure is enhanced by the juxtaposition of 21st century engineering and materials. ←previous   next→
