Whitechapel Elizabeth Line Station


Location Client Completion
London, UK Whitechapel Elizabeth Line Station 2021

Project details

Whitechapel station is an important interchange for both the Hammersmith & City and District lines and London Overground. The design sees the new Elizabeth line station weave between the existing transport services to an elevated station concourse which acts as a bridge improving community links.

Our renovation incorporates natural light, improving the passenger experience while enhancing the historic features and unique personality of the existing station. 

We have reinstated the main entrance on Whitechapel Road, and a spectacular walkway alongside the concourse provides a new public pedestrian route from the entrance on Durward Street to Whitechapel Road for local residents.

The access and ventilation shafts around the station have been designed to minimise impact on local residents. In particular, one has been split into two structures to have ventilation facing away from the surrounding buildings, which include a school.

The station design achieves BREEAM Excellent and has been created as a sustainability beacon, utilising natural light and ventilation where possible, modern construction techniques and low energy systems.
