Arnos Grove Underground Station Preserving the original design, reproducing its colour scheme, guaranteeing the required technical performance: these were the goals of the recent restoration of Arnos Grove Station in London.
The station was built in the ?thirties when the Piccadilly Line was completed and extended to the east, and its design, by architect Charles Henry Holden, (1875-1960), constituted a true model of a new type of station. For Holden introduced to the British tradition a more geometric, rational form of design, capable of conveying a modern image while inducing surprise.
This is why he decided to leave the façade in exposed brick, a choice supported by Holden?s trips to various parts of the continent. The main body of the building housing the ticket office is cylindrical in form and gives off its own light at night through walls opened up by windows.
