Great Western Ticket Office, Paddington Station,
London, UK

dpa lighting consultants were asked to help Pentagram with the lighting design of a new ticket office for Great Western Railways at London’s Paddington Station. Daniel Weil of Pentagram wanted to break the mould of visually aggressive ticket offices and bring customer and ticket sales people in contact with each other to make the whole experience positive and friendly.

Using the visually powerful columns Daniel sculpted the ticket office sympathetically around this architectural volume. The lighting was carefully considered and integrated into the architecture and new desks, as can be seen in the two images shown here.
