The Gasholders London is a remarkable feat of contemporary design and cutting-edge engineering by renowned architect Wilkinson Eyre, working with Jonathan Tuckey Design on interior architecture and Dan Pearson Studio on Landscaping. There are 145 distinctive apartments and penthouses, being built with a refurbished triplet of Grade II-listed architecture.
In a new era for King’s Cross, those living, working and shopping here will have the opportunity to be part of a vibrant new neighborhood a renaissance for this historic slice of Central London. The regeneration of its 67 acres is creating 20 new streets and 10 open square, nearly 2,000 homes and 500,000 sqft of retail space, cafes, bar and leisure facilities, plus the city’s best transport links.
Eurostar connections place mainland Europe just under two hours from St. Pancras International. The newly restored, Grade-I listed King’s Cross station is pivotal for train travel throughout the UK, with other key transport hubs — Euston, Paddington, Victoria and Waterloo — only 15 minutes away or less.
The Gasholders is perfectly positioned for London’s important business and shopping destinations including Bloomsbury, the City, Bond Street and Canary Wharf.
Most of its 145 residences have generous private balconies or terraces with views across the capital. Full height triple glazing emphasises this panoramic living alongside folding, perforated screens peppered across the facade for privacy and protection from the sun. For full impact, the mechanised elements are made of shimmering, warm metals that will catch the light as they are opened and closed, enhancing the profile of the Gasholders' contemporary architecture.
