4 Pancras Square
King’s Cross is one of the most significant recent developments in London. The site is located to the north of the existing King’s Cross railway station, adjacent to St Pancras Station.
The building consists of ten storeys of office above ground design by Eric Parry Architects.
The materials of the façade are steel and white glazed terracotta for the horizontal brise soleil shading made by Palagio Engineering. The glazed ceramic was the material that in the 19C and early modernism architecture was used in response to the dirtier environment of the European cities of these times. The natural patination of the steel absorbs light in contrast to the glazed surface of the ceramic that reflects light.
