Crossrail Architectural Components 2018

London, England

Architect: Grimshaw

Underpinning passengers’ positive experience of the new Crossrail transport system, a consortium of Atkins, Grimshaw, GIA Equation and Maynard has created a suite of interior finishes for stations and tunnels that includes elements for cladding, flooring, platform screens, seating, wayfinding and lighting. Drawing on the expertise of its multi-disciplinary team, the Crossrail components introduce a consistent look and feel to the central London stations.
The design of the range takes into consideration how qualities of light, tactility, sight and sound affect everyone’s journey, pairing the impact of passenger experience with practical concerns for optimum performance and maintenance. Separating the services and technology elements allows flexibility for the stations to evolve, providing a smooth and uncluttered canvas for the 200 million passengers expected each year.
