Have Your Say On Our Plans For Kennington Park Head House And Landscaping

Transport for London have asked for comments on their plans for the Kennington Park Head House for the Northern Line Extension.

This picture is from their consultation.

 

What surprises me is the scale. If you compare this head house for some of those of Crossrail, the Jubilee and the Voctoria Line , they seem larger and more intrusive.

This is a visualisation of Crossrail’s shaft in Mile End Park.

This is the actual Jubilee Line head house at Durant’s Wharf.

And this is the Victoria Line head house in Gibson Square.

It should be noted that the Durant’s Wharf and Gibson Square structures are for ventilation only.

But even so, I think that a better design for the Kennington Park Head House can be created.

Where are the curves for a start?
