Gasholder Park is defined by the iconic and Grade II listed Gas Holder No. 8 guide frame. Inside the guide frame, a versatile central lawn is encircled by a pathway, the outer edge of which is covered by a subtly perforated stainless steel canopy, with mirrored and satin finishes. The new park was designed by Bell Phillips Architects and Dan Pearson Studio.
Gasholders have a rich history at King’s Cross. These iconic structures were built in the 1850s as part of Pancras Gasworks and remained in use until the late 20th century, being finally decommissioned in 2000. The re-purposed gasholders have been given new life and will now be enjoyed by future generations to come.
