King's Cross Central Masterplan

London, England

This is a most significant urban development project in the UK and Europe. The client was Argent, Porphyrios Associates with Allies and Morrison were joint masterplanners and Townshend the landscape architects. Our proposals address both local, metropolitan and international interests. The masterplan achieves high connectivity with the immediate context.  Adopting a low-rise high-density strategy its robust urban framework accommodates commercial, residential, retail and community uses. This is a heritage-led design where the 19th century industrial buildings and spaces are ‘embedded’ in the new urban proposals.
