West Hampstead Railway Station

The new station building at West Hampstead is the first pilot station to impliment the TfL Overground Station Design Idiom, and has been designed to accommodate increasing passenger numbers as the overground network continues to grow.

BPR Architects have collaborated extensively with London Overground to develop a new vision for the future of the overground station design.

The concept of the station as a continuation of 'The Street' will create a more coherent link between pavement and platform. ‘The street’ will strengthen the TfL brand as a world class transport system, and reinforce the overground network as a safe, accessible, and efficient service.

The Street
