Canary Wharf Station

Canary Wharf Station

Sitting below a five-storey development - Crossrail Place, the new Canary Wharf station connects this key business region to the City of London, the West End and Heathrow. Also, it acts as a bridge between two communities - Canary Wharf Estate and Poplar to the north.

The 250 metre-long station is enveloped by the water of West India Quay dock. Designing a station to be built 18 metres below water level required significant design challenges but has resulted in optimum access to and through the Canary Wharf Estate.

The ticket hall is accessed via eight long-rise escalators. A visual connection between the station platforms and the ground level above is accomplished through the use of large openings between the two floors and a central spine of vertical circulation reinforced by the use of colour and light.

A 310 metre-long roof made up of timber lattice, sheltering a striking roof-top garden, lets light and rain in for natural irrigation. Translucent air filled pillows allow direct views in and out of the building.
