SAS bespoke solution transforms The Undercroft at St Pancras International
A bespoke ceiling and lighting system from SAS International has transformed The Undercroft at St Pancras International.
SAS International metal ceiling systems and lighting rafts have solved the challenge of designing the ceiling systems for The Undercroft at St Pancras International posed by height restrictions. The Undercroft was originally designed to store barrels of beer and is a forest of cast-iron columns supporting a grid of wrought-iron girders. The space now houses retail units and the Eurostar departure and arrival areas. Coffers are defined by exposed beam flanges, filled with curved ceiling-height metal panels. These were a bespoke solution from SAS International and incorporate luminaires. Panels swing down to provide access to services above. The bespoke panels complement the original beams and provide a practical modern look. This previously dark space is now open and bright. Daylight is channelled into the departure and arrival lounges by nine glass-sided slots containing travelators leading up to the platforms. Above the travelators, aluminium SAS System 330 suspended ceilings provide a clean, reflective and durable surface.
