Argent King’s Cross Redevelopment (Tapestry Building)
By Niall McLaughlin Architects
1.5 CES Credit (minimum) is available and places are limited. Tickets are £3 / £5 for members/non-members, and all proceeds benefit the Noel Hill Travel Bursary.
The developer Argent commissioned Niall McLaughlin Architects to design the first element in their large-scale redevelopment and regeneration of the King’s Cross area as King’s Cross Central. The regeneration project is one of the most ambitious in Europe and seeks to be a showcase of sustainable development.
The building’s program is multi-use, incorporating an energy centre, a multi-use games area, a retail / café / restaurant unit, centralised car parking, open market and affordable apartments. The site sits immediately to the north of St. Pancras International, with its northern boundary running parallel to the new Channel Tunnel Rail Link as it approaches the station. The design of building is a product of its orientation and surrounding context.
Meeting Point: Gasholder Park
