UK-based practice Stanton Williams Architects has won an international competition to design a new square at King's Cross Station in London, UK.

The proposed £6m ($9.18m) square is part of the Network Rail's £500m ($765.6m) redevelopment of the station site.

The 7,000m² square is touted to become one of the biggest public spaces in London and is being designed to accommodate around 100,000 commuters every day.

Stanton Williams is expected to unveil the final site designs soon for the project which will be complete in 2013, according to BBC News.

Network Rail is also investing £1m ($1.5m) and will work with Camden Council to upgrade the local area including £750,000 ($1.14m) to improve the pedestrian access along York Way.
