Immediately next to York’s Grade II* Station and adjacent the City Conservation Area, securing a meaningful and deliverable Planning Consent was top priority and strategic project risk for Network Rail. Working closely with City of York Planning & Regeneration and English Heritage, and in consultation with York Civic Trust and York’s Conservation Area Advisor Panel, the Practice developed a design that draws upon the themes of historic railway architecture in a contemporary manner, whilst faithfully respecting the operational needs and functions of the brief.
