Jubilee Line Extension Canada Water

Ron Herron/Imagination

Whilst the daylighting at Southwark is not evident above ground, being achieved by the source of daylight concealed in the cone; the daylight at Canada Water makes its presence felt at street level by an entrance in the form of a large glazed entrance cylinder.

The cylinder acts as a daylight lantern to the escalator halls below, and funnels daylight deep into the building, providing a dynamic shadow pattern to the hall.

This is very much in the tradition of some of Chas. Holden's original stations such as

Arnos Grove, but with a much clearer daylight orientation.
