Rolling Stock Yard
London, United Kingdom
Rolling Stock Yard in King’s Cross is designed as a contemporary response to its industrial setting, providing 57,500 sq ft of workspace for small to medium sized creative businesses. The design draws on the area’s history characterised by the machinations of transport, freight and industry, and now an emerging creative quarter. Railway lines and shipping containers are referenced in the nine-storey building, expressed as a series of stacked elements with steel structure emulating railway tracks. Internally, an industrial palette is balanced by natural ply, and a poured resin floor has inlaid track patterns that define routes from the entrance. A double-height artwork provides a playful backdrop to the ground and mezzanine levels. Branding and wayfinding were conceived by the practice’s in-house branding agency as an evolution of the architecture and interiors, with a graphic identity based on parallel and converging lines and a palette of rust orange, blue and white.
