Aedas’ work at Euston Station will transform the existing concourse and retail by restoring the elegance of the main concourse and inserting rich materials to increase retail revenue.
The existing station was built in 1962 and signifies the arrival of the electric age into British Rail. During the life of the building, retail, signage, services and advertising have been incrementally added to the station confusing the customers and detracting from the clean lines of an elegant, modernist design.
Aedas has developed a coherent language for the station wayfinding, retail signage and advertising, ensuring they are integrated into the station architecture. Improvements to the passenger experience will be provided by better connection between internal and external concourses, simplifying routes to the platforms and improving passenger information.
Increased lettable area will be provided by the addition of a mezzanine deck within the concourse, allowing growth in the premium food and beverage offer. The structure inserts rich materials into the concourse, complimenting the crispness of the original design and augmenting the wayfinding and passenger flow around the London Underground access.
The Masterplan allows for discreet work packages incrementally installed within a live operational environment allowing a defined end product to be incrementally achieved as operations and revenue allows. The work draws on Aedas’ expertise in transport retail which has demonstrated how the built environment directly affects passenger behaviour and retail income.
