JLA Infrastructure brochure June 2010

  1. 1. Selected Infrastructure Projects
  2. 2. As well as creating innovative and landmark schemes in urban regeneration, commercial and cultural projects, John Lyall and his practice have always designed the architecture of infrastructure alongside engineers and specialist contractors. These engineering driven projects range from rail stations, to bridges, floating piers, and pumping stations. John Lyall Architects’ design work celebrates the way the function and engineering requirements help to establish the form of these buildings. The buildings often have to work hard (the daily flow of the public through stations for example), and last a long time. The practice prides itself in contributing designs which are eminently practical, durable and attractive in the urban or rural context. — John Lyall

  4. 4. Olympic Park Pumping Stations John Lyall Architects are proud of our involvement with the Olympic Project – we are the designers of the Primary Foul Pumping Station at Pudding Mill Lane, and have designed three other pumping stations on the Olympic Park for Thames Water. Because of their important location, all of these projects needed to be produced with the highest quality of design. They are of course functional buildings though, and in each case the engineering has been celebrated. Working closely with the project engineers John Lyall Architects have designed buildings where form is strongly influenced by function.

  5. 5. Pudding Mill Lane Pumping Station Pudding Mill Lane lies at one of the important new entrances to the Olympic Park. During the Summer and Paralympic Games many people will pass by; but afterwards the building will remain for many decades as this large revitalised area of London develops into a new community. The building will be hard wearing and long lasting, but with its decorative engraved surface will also appeal to future users of the area. The glowing lantern at the top of the stack will improve way-finding for people arriving at the new Crossrail station immediately behind. Pudding Mill Lane is one of the essential utility facilities for the London Olympics 2012. It is a ‘primary foul pumping sta- tion’, connecting the new sewer system serving the Olympic Park to the existing Northern Outfall Sewer.

  6. 6. Pudding Mill Lane Pumping Station The circular shape of the building, which originates from the simple yet powerful form of the underground shaft, resulted from the desire to reflect the functional aspects of the engineering. Pudding Mill Lane is one of the essential utility facilities for the London Olympics 2012. It is a ‘primary foul pumping sta- tion’, connecting the new sewer system serving the Olympic Park to the existing Northern Outfall Sewer.

  7. 7. Pudding Mill Lane Pumping Station For a positive contribution to the public realm, visual interest is created through the integration of a form of public art into the design: the pre-cast concrete panels of the outer wall are pigmented and some of them are cast with a relief pattern. This pattern has been taken from Joseph Bazal- gette’s original Victorian engineering drawings for the nearby Abbey Mills Pumping Station. Pudding Mill Lane is one of the essential utility facilities for the London Olympics 2012. It is a ‘primary foul pumping sta- tion’, connecting the new sewer system serving the Olympic Park to the existing Northern Outfall Sewer.

  8. 8. Pudding Mill Lane Pumping Station The mass of the patterned concrete perimeter wall is given relief by the inclusion of flush black metal mesh panels, allowing glimpses into the operational yard behind. Pudding Mill Lane is one of the essential utility facilities for the London Olympics 2012. It is a ‘primary foul pumping sta- tion’, connecting the new sewer system serving the Olympic Park to the existing Northern Outfall Sewer.

  9. 9. Pudding Mill Lane Pumping Station Operational since January 2010, Pudding Mill Lane was the second building to be completed for the London Olympics. The project - built by Barhale Construction - was selected for the Royal Academy Summer show, as well as the exhibition ‘50 Years of London Architecture 1960-2010’. Pudding Mill Lane is one of the essential utility facilities for the London Olympics 2012. It is a ‘primary foul pumping sta- tion’, connecting the new sewer system serving the Olympic Park to the existing Northern Outfall Sewer.

  10. 10. Pudding Mill Lane Pumping Station The building has clearly defined public / private spaces, but the boundary is deliberately transparent. Inquisitive members of the public will see station equipment highlighted in bold Olympic logo pink. Pudding Mill Lane is one of the essential utility facilities for the London Olympics 2012. It is a ‘primary foul pumping sta- tion’, connecting the new sewer system serving the Olympic Park to the existing Northern Outfall Sewer.

  11. 11. Pudding Mill Lane Pumping Station Perception of the finely engraved concrete surface changes depending on the position of the viewer, as well as the lighting and even the weather conditions. The strong curve of the building means that there is always one part of the pattern which can be read. Because the pavement runs right up to the building facade, the passing public can experience the full tactile qualities of this ‘public art’. Pudding Mill Lane is one of the essential utility facilities for the London Olympics 2012. It is a ‘primary foul pumping sta- tion’, connecting the new sewer system serving the Olympic Park to the existing Northern Outfall Sewer.

  12. 12. Old Ford Water Treatment The simple form and modest materials of this building reflect its function and the fact that it lies within a protected wood- land. Another important design driver is that it is one of a family of new engineering structures for the Olympic Park; Old Ford Pumping station - also by John Lyall Architects - sits nearby. The Old Ford Water Treatment facility will take mixed storm and foul water from the Northern Outfall sewer and by a process of filtration produce ‘grey water’. This will supply non-potable water to a number of buildings and venues throughout the Olympics - providing a sustainable water source for Thames Water and the Games. John Lyall Architects Ltd. · 13 – 19 Curtain Road, London EC2A 3LT, UK phone +44 (0)20 7375 3324 · fax +44 (0)20 7375 3325 mail@johnlyallarchitects.com · www.johnlyallarchitects.com
  13. 13. Old Ford Water Treatment The choice of timber cladding, stone gabions and extensive green roof will enhance the biodiversity of the site by extend- ing habitats. The materials are also inherently sustainable themselves. The Old Ford Water Treatment facility will take mixed storm and foul water from the Northern Outfall sewer and by a process of filtration produce ‘grey water’. This will supply non-potable water to a number of buildings and venues throughout the Olympics - providing a sustainable water source for Thames Water and the Games.

  14. 14. Old Ford Water Treatment Old Ford is a small protected woodland situated just 150m from the Olympic Stadium. As with all of the buildings designed by John Lyall Architects around the Olympic site, the scheme has a simple modesty appropriate to its location, which does not try to compete with its more famous architectural neighbours. The Old Ford Water Treatment facility will take mixed storm and foul water from the Northern Outfall sewer and by a process of filtration produce ‘grey water’. This will supply non-potable water to a number of buildings and venues throughout the Olympics - providing a sustainable water source for Thames Water and the Games.

  15. 15. Old Ford Pumping Station Old Ford is an existing protected woodland – a secluded, quiet environment. The buildings have been designed as a series of objects in a small clearing – visitors to the site and passers-by on the greenway will glimpse the intriguing cubes through the trees. This is the first of two new pumping stations for Thames Water, both of which started construction on site in 2010. The projects have similar objectives, recovering ground water for use during times of drought. Old Ford is located at the edge of the Olympic park, immediately to the south west of the stadium and adjacent to the greenway. John Lyall Architects Ltd. · 13 – 19 Curtain Road, London EC2A 3LT, UK phone +44 (0)20 7375 3324 · fax +44 (0)20 7375 3325 mail@johnlyallarchitects.com · www.johnlyallarchitects.com
  16. 16. Old Ford Pumping Station The project is conceived as a collection of perfect cubes in patinated Corten Steel – each housing the various engineering components – arranged around the well access space – itself clad in Corten but with a fine decorative pattern cut into it. This is the first of two new pumping stations for Thames Water, both of which started construction on site in 2010. The projects have similar objectives, recovering ground water for use during times of drought. Old Ford is located at the edge of the Olympic park, immediately to the south west of the stadium and adjacent to the greenway.

  17. 17. Stratford Box Pumping Station Stratford Box pumping station sits at the centre of the Olympic Park, alongside an existing balancing pond, a sensitive and important nature conservation site. The Olympic Stadium lies to the South while to the North is ‘Stratford Box’ – a large concrete structure recessed into the landscape which encloses the railway tracks from Kings Cross as they emerge from the ground. To retain its structural integrity, millions of litres of water per day are pumped out of the surrounding ground, and this project will recover this otherwise wasted resource. The engineering elements are brought together in a design which preserves and enhances the character of the surrounding open space, and which also compliments the appearance and function of the wider Olympic project in both Games and legacy modes.

  18. 18. Stratford Box Pumping Station Stratford Box pumping station sits at the centre of the Olympic Park, alongside an existing balancing pond, a sensitive and important nature conservation site. This is the second of two new pumping stations for Thames Water, both of which started construction on site in 2010. The projects have similar objectives, recovering ground water for use during times of drought.

  19. 19. Stratford Box Pumping Station The engineering components of the Stratford Box pumping station are housed within interconnected brick volumes, varying in scale and nestling into the landscape. This is the second of two new pumping stations for Thames Water, both of which started construction on site in 2010. The projects have similar objectives, recovering ground water for use during times of drought.

  20. 20. Wick Lane Pumping Station The Wick Lane pumping station is part of Thames Water’s wider policy to improve the drainage infrastructure. Under current conditions during heavy rainfall, the sewage system in the Wick Lane area has to over-flow directly into the River Lea. The station will prevent this from occurring by drawing water-up into the Joseph Bazalgette designed North London Outfall Sewer, from which it can be discharged into treatment works. The pump station will house two large Archimedian Screws, an engine room and a sub-station. The site is located prominently on the entrance to the Greenway. The building forms an entrance to the Greenway and in response to this, is made up of a series of repetitive sculptural shapes. It also responds to the demanding technical brief and will be constructed from robust materials designed for 100 years or more.

  21. 21. North Greenwich Underground Station “North Greenwich is as purposeful and functional a station as any on the line. Yet it has a quality – a sense of delight – which goes beyond the functional.” —Ken Powell, The Jubilee Line Extension One of 12 new underground stations designed by prominent architects for the Jubilee Line Extension Constructed in a “trench” 15 metres deep and over 200 metres long in a contaminated industrial land on the Greenwich Peninsula, the azure-blue mosaic clad station opened to great acclaim in 1997 and was shortlisted for the Stirling Prize in 1999. It also featured in the exhibition 50 Years of London Architec- ture 1960-2010.

  22. 22. North Greenwich Underground Station “The architects were able to capitalize on the benefits offered by the clear site to produce a station impressive not only for its scale but equally for its expressive and dramatic detail and virtuoso use of materials” —Ken Powell, The Jubilee Line Extension One of 12 new underground stations designed by prominent architects for the Jubilee Line Extension Constructed in a “trench” 15 metres deep and over 200 metres long in a contaminated industrial land on the Greenwich Peninsula, the azure-blue mosaic clad station opened to great acclaim in 1997 and was shortlisted for the Stirling Prize in 1999. It also featured in the exhibition 50 Years of London Architec- ture 1960-2010.

  23. 23. North Greenwich Underground Station “At North Greenwich, you find the millennium version of the transport interchanges built on the Piccadilly Line in the 1930’s. The difference is that the architects have created an interchange with all the presence and excitement of a regional airport. This is regeneration in earnest.” —Ken Powell, The Jubilee Line Extension One of 12 new underground stations designed by prominent architects for the Jubilee Line Extension Constructed in a “trench” 15 metres deep and over 200 metres long in a contaminated industrial land on the Greenwich Peninsula, the azure-blue mosaic clad station opened to great acclaim in 1997 and was shortlisted for the Stirling Prize in 1999.

  24. 24. Tottenham Hale Overground Station “This must be one of the most unusual railway buildings of all time, a kind of organic engineering structure that is as friendly as it is functional.” —Jonathan Glancey, The Independent With the opening of Stansted Airport, Tottenham Hale became an important interchange for the Victoria Line tube and overground express service to London. The scheme links a new important station a “cathedral of glass”– with a re-invented underground station. Dynamic light and water structures enliven the forecourt where buses and taxis connect. Collaborating artist: Bruce McLean John Lyall Architects Ltd. · 13 – 19 Curtain Road, London EC2A 3LT, UK phone +44 (0)20 7375 3324 · fax +44 (0)20 7375 3325 mail@johnlyallarchitects.com · www.johnlyallarchitects.com
  25. 25. Tottenham Hale Overground Station “It is the combination of high efficiency, determined enforcement of a concise design strategy and considerate approach to the needs of the users that makes Tottenham Hale station so successful as a public utility. By making something that is much more than a mechanistic interchange the architects have provided a lesson for the planners of this suburban crossroads.” —Tony Meadows, Architecture Today With the opening of Stansted Airport, Tottenham Hale became an important interchange for the Victoria Line tube and overground express service to London. The scheme links a new important station a “cathedral of glass”– with a re-invented underground station. Dynamic light and water structures enliven the forecourt where buses and taxis connect.

  26. 26. Lifting Bridge, Canary Wharf This elegant, but robust, infrastructure building was designed to house the machinery which powers a new lifting bridge at Canary Wharf, London. The silver painted steel- clad building also features a small, but visible, control room for the operating personnel. Designed with engineers Mott MacDonald, the building nicknamed “the-chicken” has become a small, but much loved architectural feature in London’s Docklands.

  27. 27. Floating Fire Station, Lambeth The fire fighting pier is located on the Thames opposite the Houses of Parliament. It acts as a base for the various fire crews which are out on the river constantly over 24 hours. The floating pontoon provides docking space for the fire tender boats, and an operational centre, together with mess facilities for the crew. The pier was designed with engineers Parkman Buck, constructed at a shipyard in Aberystwyth and towed along the English Channel, up the Thames and moored finally by Lambeth Bridge.
