King's Cross St. Pancras, London
The extensively modernised area around King’s Cross officially opened in September 2013 by the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, who also laid one of the final paving stones on the new King’s Cross Square.
In April 2010, Stanton Williams Architects were announced as the winners of a Network Rail competition for the design of a new 7000m² square to the front of King’s Cross Station, as part of the King’s Cross Redevelopment Programme.
Hardscape supplied hard landscaping materials including Crystal Black granite and SPI granite paving, Royal White granite kerbs, Crystal Black granite to claddings and copings to rotunda, structures, vents and bespoke benches. The creation of a new King’s Cross Square presents one of the most exciting urban challenges facing London today and its’ completion brings a grandness and old-world charm to one of Europe’s city-centre railway stations back to the heart of the capital.
