First Look Inside Revamped London Bridge Station


The ever-brilliant Brockley Central blog pointed us in the direction of some new eye candy showing the Shard and London Bridge development. The image above, looking out towards the bus stands, depicts how the concourse of the mainline station will appear in just two years time. It's a light, airy touch, reminiscent of the newer section of St Pancras. Although it's not going to win any distinctive-building-of-the-year awards, it's appearance is a major improvement on existing facilities and will fit in well with the acres of towering glass soon to bedeck this part of town.

The image comes from the official Shard website, where you can find gorgeous pics of the Shard development, including a new fly-around movie. Be warned, though. Architects always over-egg their web sites (except Richard Rogers, who swings in the opposite direction), be prepared to slog through annoying flash interfaces and computer-crashing PDFs.
