West Ham station is a London Underground and National Rail station in east London. The design was considered as a 'kit of parts' to enable construction to be carried out in this difficult environment within very exacting constraints.
The elegant roof canopy is conceived as a dynamic series of rhythmic structural bays comprised of steel columns and concrete beams, with lightweight glass, brickwork piers, and aluminum infill panels.
A continuous band of deep blue light illuminates the underside of the canopy, accentuating its dynamic soaring form.
The components are pre-fabricated and fully pre-wired, incorporating all intercom and lighting systems to create a ‘plug and play’ modular solution.
