Weston Williamson's proposals for a new ceramic-tile clad ventilation shaft and substation for the Northern Line, drawn up in conjunction with William Matthews Associates

Four-storey tile-clad cube will supersede former Underground station

Weston Williamson & Partners has revealed proposals for a glazed ceramic tile-clad block in Euston that will relocate London Underground services currently housed in an Edwardian former Tube station.

The four-storey substation and vent will be one of the first buildings delivered as part of the widescale redevelopment of Euston Station and its surroundings in preparation for the start of High Speed Two rail services in 2026.

The westward expansion of the station also requires the demolition of an ox-blood tiled former station on the corner of Drummond Street and Melton Street. Built to serve the Charing Cross, Euston and Hampstead Railway, the structure now houses an electical substation and ventilation shaft for the London Underground’s Northern Line.
