Crossrail – Whitechapel Station, preserving the past whilst embracing modern travel.
BakerHicks design, engineering and project delivery required a diverse portfolio of images and video footage to fully explain their involvement at Whitechapel Station. An extremely complex project that was constructed whilst the station remained active. Costing a total of £831 Million it has been a significant part of Crossrail, Europe’s largest infrastructure project.
The architects managed to create access to the new station through the sensitively restored original entrance on Whitechapel High Street, opened in 1876. It feels a bit like a time warp as you progress from the 1800’s through to a cathedral like ticketing hall, then down into the clean white, minimal space of the new Queen Elizabeth Line.
