Stations as Streets

Pioneers of the concept of stations as civic spaces, BPR Architects began their journey in this key area of research with a competition win in 2010. Now universally accepted by both Transport for London, train operating companies and London Boroughs, this was new thinking less than a decade ago. BPR continue to lead and influence in the design of rail stations and transport hubs for London and across the UK.

Paul Beaty Pownall is a regular contributor to rail events and an expert panellist for industry discussion forums and think tanks and sits among the industry's key influencers.

Mike Stubbs – director of london overground “over the past year we have worked with bpr architects to produce the london overground stations design idiom which aligns with the london underground idiom but also incorporates some london overground uniqueness. It was exciting to see the way it was very positively received by those at transport by design and provides a great basis for the future of our stations.”
