Old Street Station entrance

Old Street Station entrance

Location: London, Uk

A new green roof topped entrance to Old Street station will be a landmark feature of the infamous central London roundabout, providing a grand sense of arrival and departure and integrated into a pedestrianised, landscaped peninsula.

Area improvements for everyone

Old Street roundabout is a vital part of London’s strategic road network and crucial to the movement of traffic through the centre of London. A gateway to Hackney, the City and beyond, it has long been an accident blackspot, largely due to the volume of cyclists that use it, as well as a disorientating network of routes and road crossings for pedestrians.

Inaccessible and unwelcoming, the roundabout also causes a significant degree of community severance.


It is dominated by unattractive street edge clutter and there is an awkward juxtaposition of the infrastructure associated with the function of the station and the retail units below.

As part of a wider scheme for the Old Street roundabout area aimed at improving the site for cyclists, pedestrians, residents and local workers, WW+P with WSP and Morgan Sindall were asked to design a new station entrance to provide stepped access to St. Agnes Well and Old Street station, as well as a new pedestrian lift, clerestory, and back of house service lift.

Through working collaboratively together, the whole team is proud to put forward a new design direction for the entrance structure. The resulting design is a simple, well crafted, architectural solution that responds to the site and project constraints.

WW+P Partner Daniel Moor

A grand sense of arrival and departure

The station entrance is an elegant glass structure with a biodiverse green roof, supported on a sculptural concrete tree column. The planted roof and ‘tree’ relate to and book-end the existing landscaping of the Promenade of Light along Old Street and the new public realm on the peninsula. The design maximises transparency and sightlines across the space to improve wayfinding and security.


The design of the new entrance has been carefully considered to provide a high-quality user experience, both on approach and from within. The double-height volume maximises daylight to the levels below, whilst providing a civic-scaled structure at this key city focal point, as well as a grand sense of arrival and departure.
