UK-based Weston Williamson Architects has unveiled its design for the proposed crossrail station at Paddington, London, which is part of the east-west rail link.

The design features a metal and glass entrance in the north in place of the existing Hammersmith & City Line station, which is to be demolished, while the south side leads to a Grade-I listed building which will be preserved.

The glazed building features a green roof and solar panels, which will be used to power the station lighting.

The station concourse will be used to display art, while a landscaped public square will be created between the new station entrance and Regent's Canal as well as a taxi stand.

The new entrance will serve as a access point for all services.
