Pudding Mill Lane

Pudding Mill Lane DLR station, is an enabling project for Crossrail’s Eastern Portal and forms part of the post Olympics legacy, the project was completed in April 2014.

The design is a simple, legible and elegant architectural solution that endeavours to create a new benchmark for future DLR stations, raising the bar and meeting the expectations of today’s passengers.

The impact of post-Olympic event crowds and future developments within the legacy masterplan demands a great degree of flexibility, sustainability and safeguarding be introduced into the station design. Additional vertical circulation, an enhanced urban realm and alternate future use of the station under croft to facilitate an active street frontage of 1000m2 of retail space has been design for.

Glass is truly a versatile material and allowed us to be creative and expressive with the station architecture and more importantly the passenger experience. Rigorous detailing and the use of prototyping and samples combined with strict quality control ensured a high quality facade and well-engineered solution. The perimeter arrangement of glass maximises natural daylight and exploits extensive views over the Olympic park for enhanced passenger experience.

Throughout the four seasons, the external façade along with the internal station environment celebrates constant transformation.
