Gateway to the Olympic park
Stratford Station, one of the busiest in the UK, has been transformed as part of the ongoing regeneration of the Olympic borough.
Stratford Station was the key entry point from the London Underground to the 2012 Olympic Park, creating a large increase in passenger numbers.
Our refurbishment was undertaken over a 5-year programme while the station remained fully operational. Our new design re-orientates the station away from Stratford town centre and towards the Olympic Park and the Westfield Shopping Centre. This was achieved by extending the existing Jubilee line ticket hall, allowing direct access onto a new westbound Central line platform.
We transformed the external space from an ad hoc car park into vibrant public realm integrated with the station concourse, alongside new lifts that allow step-free access throughout the station and the revitalisation and extension of a disused subway for better integration of rail, tube and DLR services.
Colour and super graphics were introduced to help orientate people round the station. Space was provided for Art on the Underground to display art works.
