AIA UK BUILDING TOUR - COAL DROPS YARD
BY HEATHERWICK STUDIO

Address: Stable St, King’s Cross, London N1C 4DQ Meeting Point: The Fish and Coal Building, on top of the viaduct arches (just after the Coal Office)
Reimagining two disused Victorian structures, this project has transformed buildings never designed for public use into a new retail destination and publicly accessible space. The roofs of both structures were in need of significant repair, providing an opportunity to create a unique moment – a ‘kissing point’ where the two roofs stretch to meet each other, forming a new upper storey and a sheltered double-height space beneath that can host performances. Marrying crafted elements with precision engineering, the design comprehensively yet sensitively restores the buildings and yard to provide a wide range of unit sizes to cater to a changing sector.
