The Lighthouse . London WC1X

The Lighthouse . London WC1X

The complete reconstruction behind the existing derelict façade of a Grade II landmark building in London’s King’s Cross to provide 24,000 sq ft of high quality office and retail space.

The most highly visible design intervention is a new floor of offices beneath a vaulted stepping zinc clad roof that creates dramatic internal spaces.

The design and construction faced significant detailing challenges, both acoustic and structural, due to the existing building being built 1m above two underground train tunnels.
