King’s Cross Bridge . London WC1X

This new 18,000 sq ft office and retail building completes the urban block shared with The Lighthouse in front of King’s Cross station.

Sharing the design challenges of being over two Underground tunnels the scheme is a lightweight structure that architecturally respects the height and rhythm of the listed Lighthouse building whilst having its own unashamedly contemporary design aesthetic.

A sculptural saw-tooth roof provides natural light to the top floor offices whilst seamlessly integrating sustainable PV panels into the design.
