The opening of the Northern Ticket Hall on King´s Cross, St Pancras underground station represents the conclusion to an important part of a development project for London's infrastructure. Using selected materials that are both elegant and robust and flexible at the same time, a bright and spacious new underground station has arisen. The Northern Ticket Hall provides an additional connection to St Pancras, while the new station at the end of the original concourse houses shops and other service providers.
In addition an entrance to the new lower-lying underground stations of the Northern, Victoria and Piccadilly lines has been created. This enables greater dispersion of passengers on the platforms, preventing excessive congestion. The additional entrance ensures greater safety too, providing alternative routes that can be used from every platform. The Northern Ticket Hall has a simple, elegant and timeless design and besides optimal use of daylight, 90 x Selux M 125 luminaires aid passenger orientation.
