The Elizabeth line Bond Street station will help improve accessibility and increase capacity at one of the busiest shopping districts in the UK to accommodate over 225,000 people using the Jubilee, Central and Elizabeth lines daily.
Two brand new ticket halls at street level – one at Davies Street, the other at Hanover Square - flooded with natural light, lead passengers to the platforms.
Entrances bordered by colonnades – red sandstone and bronze for Davies Street, pale Portland stone for Hanover Square – blur the line between interior and exterior spaces creating a great sense of openness and civic presence, a feature which is further reinforced by the high ceilings at each location.
The colonnades have been designed so that the station and commercial development above are seen as a single construction. Wide openings between columns lead to clear, legible entrances. The unused spaces between columns are filled with glazed window panels and ventilation grilles framed in bronze.
The beams of the coffered ceilings align with the lines of the columns which open out to the new public spaces. Exiting the eastern ticket hall, passengers are presented with a revamped green space – a result of the public realm transformation of Hanover Square led by Westminster City Council in collaboration with nearby property owners and developers. New mixed-use buildings sit above both ticket halls, helping the new public buildings weave into the surrounding architecture.
In addition to the station improvements, Crossrail worked with Westminster Council on proposals for improvements to the area around the station.
