King’s Cross Gasholder Competition
Inspired by the broch typology our proposal relates to the pre-existing frame context in potential re-use of the wrought iron panels mounted on a galvanised steel frame to form a conical outer form. A brick cylindrical diaphragm wall embodies the memory of the former gasholder base and is supported back to the outer form, dramatically ollowing the path of the stair treads.

Sandwiched between the forms a stair ascends to a viewing gallery affording good views across the central London roofscape. Along the journey landings provide access to viewing galleries over the outdoor arena.

The journey to the top is further animated by use of the space between the forms as a climbing arena.

Access to lower level indoor event space is via staircase located in the outdoor arena and within the feature staircase enclosure. A central roof lit multi function event space is the focus of the lower level.

Learning resources similar to those illustrated inspired by local context in the hard and soft areas will drift into the central space but be located outwith the frame.
