St Pancras Retail London St Pancras International
Following the success of the toilet refurbishment project, HPA via competitive fee bid and interview process, secured the commission to design and deliver a new retail unit within the main station complex.
This was procured through a traditional contract with HPA undertaking design, construction detailing and tenders for the shell on behalf of HS1, including co-ordination of the design team. We also co-ordinated the fit-out drawings provided by Dune. The site provided many challenges, not least the existing sloping floor, and the interface with and protection of the historic fabric – St Pancras is Grade 1 Listed. All of the external perimeter walls were clad with planar glazing, to a height of over 3.0m, and the interface with the existing adjacent units was critical. The result is a striking modern unit which fits in extremely well with its surroundings.
