7N win international design contest for UK railway stations

7N Architects won an international design contest for UK railway stations.

7N were selected from over 200 international entries as the winners of Re-Imagining Railways design competition. The contest sought architects, engineers and designers from across the world to reimagine how small to medium-size stations can improve the travel experience of the millions of passengers who use Britain’s railway.

The winning entry considers the needs of passengers and local communities. An eye-catching clock tower serves a civic purpose as a local landmark and meeting place for social activities. Sweeping canopies provide shelter for passengers and station facilities. The modular station design can be integrated into a variety of locations that complement the local landscape.

The 7N-led team including Arup, Gardiner and Theobald and Lisa Mackenzie Landscape Architect will now work closely with Network Rail to develop the proposals in further detail. Watch this space!

WyrdTree teamed up with 7N in order to communicate the visual design for the new design, alongside Pillar Visual.
