Crystal Palace Station

Novum was contracted to design, manufacture and install this striking ETFE air filled pillow canopy that floats over the platforms at Crystal Palace Station and includes 20 clear foil pillows. The new canopy’s structural profile bears a remarkable similarity to its Victorian predecessor with the new roofline mirroring the visible outline of the original roof. The finished canopy at this once iconic station, with its large panels of uninterrupted sky, makes the platform area feel light and spacious.
