Hoxton Overground Station

Hoxton Overground Station

Location: London, United Kingdom
Services: Full Architectural Design

A set of derelict Victorian rail arches provided the setting for the new Hoxton Station. Through a sensitive revitalisation of this complex structure we created a new landmark station enlivening the surrounding space and connecting the area. The insertion of the ticket hall into the brick arches showcases traditional construction materials while at the same time providing a platform for more modern materials such as stainless steel on the new staircases and lifts.

Rehabilitating heritage structures

There were considerable technical challenges associated with transforming the derelict Victorian rail arches into a compliant and modern station that met the aesthetic guidelines of the new East London Line. In addition the retention of the arches structure set a number of physical constraints in terms of both construction and operation that we needed to address as lead architects. 


While the design had been through the Approval in Principal process, following our appointment we undertook a comprehensive review and uncovered significant issues with the reference design. The complex construction programme meant that any alterations to the design had to be made with a clear understanding of any impact they could cause.  

Place-making infrastructure

The challenging site and the issues raised during the review of the reference design required a collaborative approach with the client and key stakeholder to ensure that any alterations or amendments to the design did not impact on delivery of the stations We undertook regular collaborative workshops with the Client and their stakeholders, including the London Borough of Hackney, to address the issue and deliver the finished station ahead of schedule. 


The final design meets all the technical requirements of a new station while being aesthetically pleasing and rooted within its context. In addition, the creation of high quality urban realm around the station entrance has resulted in a new pedestrian connection to the Geffrye Museum. This important local landmark is visible from the station platform and connected fully with the station and the local area. The footfall generated by the station supports new retail situated within the arches that enlivens the space and the urban realm. 

It manages to accommodate all the functional requirements within the existing brick arches that are fitted out with stainless elements reminiscent of a 'Donald Judd' sculpture.
