Crossrail Paddington Station that located in London, United Kingdom, was designed by Weston Williamson. The proposals for Paddington incorporate substantial works in and around Brunel’s Grade 1 listed station and the design has been subject to extensive review with Westminster City Council, English Heritage and CABE through the Crossrail Review panel. Weston Williamson’s design preserves the integrity of the Grade I listed building and improves the northern side of Paddington.
The Crossrail station creates a dramatic great space that responds to Brunel’s original ‘great interior’. The ticket hall is open to fresh air and is flooded with natural light via an elegant glass canopy that also encloses a vibrant new public realm adjacent to the historic station. The open design allows natural way-finding and provides a spatial drama appropriate for this strategic location.
