St. Pancras International Station, Station RedevelopmentCORBER

St Pancras International Station’s Gothic architecture makes it one of the world’s most recognisable buildings.

The choice of St Pancras, which is Grade I listed, as the new international Eurostar terminus demanded a comprehensive and highly complex programme of modernisation and expansion, together with a meticulous programme of conservation and restoration.

The station had to be doubled in length to accommodate the Eurostar trains, with the concourse being extended well beyond the immense structure of the original Barlow Shed under a minimalist floating canopy.

Light wells were punched through the platform deck to open up views to the elegant roof structure from the former storage area below, enabling it to be transformed into an impressive contemporary retail space.

The scope of the project also included the development of both the Midland Mainline Station and the Thameslink Station.
