King’s Cross, Gasholders

Gasholders is a unique residential building in the heart of King’s Cross. The framework of the historic gas holder triplets have been transformed into three residential buildings around a central courtyard.

Our concept took inspiration from the original gas holder’s function and the relative size of the buildings. The bronze frame represents the gas holder structure and the glass represents the telescopic container, which change in height within the frame depending on the floor you are on.
