Regent Quarter, Kings Cross
Richard Griffiths Architects were recommended by English Heritage to act as conservation and design consultants
to P&O Developments and RHWL Architects for the redevelopment of four urban blocks adjacent to King’s Cross Station following the rejection of earlier proposals.
The area contains a number of notable industrial buildings of the 1870’s, unlisted but in a Conservation Area, with interesting roof structures.
The practice helped to devise the new masterplan for the refurbishment of all the
significant buildings, while still meeting the commercial requirements of P&O, as a focus for the regeneration of the local area.
The proposals were warmly supported by
the Islington Society, who had previously been objectors.
