Two Pancras Square, King’s Cross

A striking gateway to the King’s Cross development

Two Pancras Square was designed by Allies Morrison and comprises 30,000 sq ft of accommodation over nine floors.

There is an impressive reception area and floor to ceiling glazing on all floors, which creates a light airy working space for occupants. Showers and cycle spaces are in the basement and a private roof garden is located on the top of the building.
On the ground floor there is retail and restaurant space, currently utilised by Nike Central, Space NK, Carhartt and Kimchee Korean Restaurant.

Two Pancras square is serviced by the shared delivery basement, which is located underneath the public realm in Pancras Square.

It’s two elevations reflect the differing public realm

The elevations on either side of the building vary in design to reflect the public spaces they face. On the King’s Boulevard side, the shopfronts sit between columns to create a sense of streetscape and golden coloured fins edge the windows. On the other side of the building facing Pancras Square, the building line is set back to form a colonnade. Both facades are made of a white precast stone outer masonry layer.

Award winning, sustainable design

The design is environmentally conscious, incorporating an air displacement and chilled beam cooling system. Two Pancras Square achieved a BREEAM outstanding and was given a Civic Trust Award Commendation and a Silver International Green Apple Award for the Built Environment and Architectural Heritage in 2016.
