TWO PANCRAS SQUARE

King's Cross, London

Two Pancras Square is a new office building forming part of our masterplan for King’s Cross. The building addresses two new public spaces – Pancras Square to the west and the King’s Boulevard to the east. It provides 130,000 sq.ft net Grade A office space above retail and restaurant uses.

The facades are composed from a white precast stone outer masonry layer, behind which sits a fine metal and glass inner layer. As the building rises, the masonry window surrounds become more delicate, whilst the inner glass layer recedes into the building. At the final floor it is completely absent, revealing a glimpse of the sky.

Sustainability has been central to the development of the King’s Cross masterplan and Two Pancras Square has achieved BREEAM Outstanding.
