The future design of London Underground stations has been made available to the public at an exhibition at Studio Egret West (SEW). The exhibition showcases London Underground’s new design vision, which has been developed with SEW to ensure future station design builds upon the network’s heritage and provides customers with welcoming, comfortable and easy journeys.
The vision outlined in the London Underground Station Design Idiom covers every aspect of station architecture and ambience from pavement to platform. It provides a set of design principles that will be applied to every style of station and every project, from small-scale repairs to major refurbishments and new stations. This will ensure stations are built and developed with uniformly high standards of design which retain and celebrate individuality and local character while forming part of a cohesive network.
The principles mean that LU will conserve and create stations that provide simple, clean and uncluttered spaces for the benefit of customers, represent London’s rich heritage and contemporary culture, act as a focal point of the local community and showcase London’s distinctive architecture.
