Underground Stations London
We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of London Underground Station Architecture. We aim to include projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both. We cover completed Tube buildings and proposed building designs.

Canary Wharf Station
Canary Wharf Underground station is on the Jubilee line, between Canada Water and North Greenwich. The building was opened on 17 September 1999 as part of the Jubilee Line Extension.
Over 40 million people pass through the station each year, making it second busiest on the London Underground outside Central London after Stratford, and also the busiest that serves only a single line. Above ground there is little sign of the vast interior: two curved glass canopies at the east and west ends of the station cover the entrances and allow daylight into the ticket hall below.
Crossrail Stations – proposed developments
Design: various Architects

Plans by Crossrail to develop 30,000 sqft of residential space in Holborn have been approved by Camden Council. The building development will sit above the Fisher Street shaft – a single storey structure that provides access and ventilation to the below ground Crossrail tunnels.

Kings Cross Concourse
The King’s Cross Station redevelopment and the Olympic Masterplan share this year’s prestigious NLA ‘Overall Winner’ Award. Both projects were commended for their outstanding contribution to London. The dramatic new space combines beautifully with painstaking work on the heritage of the Grade1 listed station. This balance between old and new typifies the complexity of development in the UK capital city.
