West Ham Station, Jubilee Line Extension

About The Project

West Ham Station lies between Stratford and Canning Town Stations on the Jubilee Line extension, where it runs above ground. The lofty ticket hall with its banks of escalators and strongly expressed structure is linked by a bridge to four rail lines and a main road, as well as the Jubilee Line platform and upper level concourse. This station is the only one on the JLE to make overt reference to Charles Holden’s 1930s underground stations, and stands as a timeless and dignified civic landmark. By day the ticket hall and bridge link create a welcoming arcaded entrance that addresses a tree-planted paved square, while at night the building glows like a lighthouse as its glass blocks are lit up from inside.
