Context

The three Grade II listed cast iron gasholders near Kings Cross have been developed as part of the regeneration of the area and are a distinctive feature in the locality.

Work undertaken

Urbastyle manufactured and supplied bespoke concrete benches and planters for the Gasholders project. The dark concrete benches and planters were created in a contemporary, industrial style and create a striking feature in the inner atrium of the buildings.

Outcome

The project won a RIBA national Award 2018. The awards were presented to 49 projects across the UK that are recognised as significant contributions to architecture.

The RIBA Judges described the scheme as a “successful marrying of old with new, sensitively handling the needs of 21st-century living while celebrating the most beautiful industrial structures in the renaissance of King’s Cross: the triplet of Grade II-listed cast-iron gasholders."
