Green Park Underground Station Designed by Capita Symonds

As historically sensitive locations, in a key metropolis go, it doesn’t get any more significant. @CapitaSymonds have delivered a sensitive renovation of the well known chaotic transport interchange of Green Park Underground Station. The station sits nestled in between @theritzlondon and the Royal Green Park on Piccadilly.

The building has been designed at a low height with apertures through the central structure, allowing for minimal disturbance to park views. The metal clad curved green roof provides a sheltering spot for those London downpours, while you wait for the 38 bus!

On the photography front you could call it a nightmare location to photograph. With my @HasselbladUK set up on a @manfrotto_tweet and about 50,000 commuters running past every hour, more intent on tweeting than looking out for obstacles, it made for a challenging site. When a quiet period arrived and the sun come out I could guarantee that the 38 bus would roll in to frame. All part of the fun of working in London. I was lucky with a beautiful blue sky as dusk fell over the city.
