Leeds Station South Link

Bauman Lyons Architects and AECOM were commissioned by Network Rail to develop RIBA Stages 1-3 equivalent proposals for a new south access to Leeds Station. The only viable location was to site the access point over the River Aire and there were a number of severe constraints. The form that developed is a respond to the need to minimise the enclosure and affect on the light levels and amenity of the residential properties on either bank of the river and produce an elegant, eye-catching entrance point respecting and celebrating its unique location.
