Stratford Kiosks

This was a winning scheme for the RIBA competition for a set of Kiosks at the entrance to Stratford Station. This Olympic project required the kiosks not only to perform as a functioning retail unit but also provide a sense of space and for a portal for approaching spectators.

We used a combination of Reinforced concrete and CLT Panels to form this panalised building. The concrete base was extended up to form a robust skirt and which also acted as a security barrier to the station and the buses which entered the adjacent station. The CLT panels allowed the structure to be quickly assembled in the space as well as providing a self finishing structure. The use of screw piles for foundations meant the structure is completely demountable if required.
