British Land and Network Rail have appointed two architects to design the £1bn redevelopment of Euston Station.

Allies and Morrison, who designed the BBC’s headquarters at White City, have been appointed to master-plan the redevelopment of the 15-acre site.

Regeneration catalyst

The joint venture has tasked the firm with creating a scheme which ‘acts as a regeneration catalyst for both the major transport interchange and the wider Euston area.’

The 3m sq ft scheme will incorporate residential, commercial, retail and other uses.

Foreign Office Architects, run by husband-and-wife founders Alejandro Zaera Polo and Farshid Moussavi, have been appointed to design the redevelopment of the station.

The appointments follow conceptual designs for the site being drawn up by Larry Oltmanns.

British Land aims to submit a planning application by early 2010 and, subject to planning permission, start work in 2011.
