The Underground station at Southwark contains several distinctly different spaces, being complicated by the requirement to incorporate a link with Waterloo East Railtrack station.
Arriving at Southwark Station you are led by daylit escalators to the 'intermediate concourse' which leads you either down to the main Jubilee Line train level, or upwards to Waterloo East. The intermediate concourse is a key element of circulation.
The concourse is daylit from overhead by means of a cone clad in blue glass patterned in triangles, the daylight through the cone being controlled by 'piranese' like deep louvres. This is an enormously impressive space, and a dignified entrance to the 'world of the train'.
