Stainless steel pressure locked floor grating: PLSS-11x66/25x2; grade AISI-316L
The final phase of the £500m redevelopment of Kings Cross has been completed with the creation of a 75,000 sq ft square in front of the station.
The square provides a fitting aspect to the simple Grade I listed façade of the original station, designed by Lewis Cubitt in 1851, and which represented a radical departure from Victorian Gothic in favour of a new functional modernity.
The square has granite benches with inset panels of high quality stainless steel grating supplied by Lang+Fulton, stunning lighting, trees and an area dedicated to art.
The 11x66/25x2 aperture grating panels for the six separate seating areas were shaped to accommodate the uplighters, the planting and adjacent watering points and were supplied in stainless steel grade AISI-316L with a satin finish.
