Heatherwick Studio’s Coal Drops Yard, a major new shopping district and public space in King’s Cross, London, was unveiled today ahead of its public opening on Friday 26 October 2018.  The project is the first major building completion in London for Heatherwick Studio and one of several large-scale developments in the capital that the studio is currently working on. These include a new major building for Google in King’s Cross that is currently under construction and the transformation of Olympia London.

The studio’s design celebrates the specific texture and history of the Victorian industrial buildings while creating 100,000 sq ft of new public space, including retail and dining destinations. The units vary in size ( from 160, to over 20,000 sq ft), accommodating a wide range of established and emerging brands, alongside new restaurants, bars, and cafés.
