Haggerston Station is one of five new stations on the London Overground, helping to rejuvenate this part of Hackney. The station serves elevated platforms and is organised around three tiled accommodation pods. The layout leads passengers up to the platforms through dramatic day-lit multi level spaces featuring public art. The simple architectural language of precast concrete, tiles and cast glass develops themes common in London’s historic station architecture. Towers are used to emphasise the station’s presence in a manner similar to the 1930s stations of Charles Holden. Our platform canopy design was also used at Hoxton station and our role was extended to cover line-wide architectural elements used on all the new stations including the suspended linear lighting system.
