Oxford Circus Station

Oxford Circus station is one of the most complex Zone one stations; since opening in 1900 as part of the Central London Railway, first the Bakerloo joined in in 1906 followed by the Victoria line in 1968. All three lines, at platform level, had very different finishes, from varying dates and of varying style and quality. The Victoria line is the most complete, using a basic 6” x 6” tile module and on the southbound platform showing the restored Hans Unger graphic that was also used on a large scale in the ticket hall re-tiling. Elsewhere in the station to give some feel of continuity a matt white finish was adopted, using slate as the contrasting colour and texture to delineate portals and corners.

Craven Dunnill Jackfield used its skills in colour-matching and waterjet cutting to bring a modern twist to the Hans Unger graphics. Working with London Underground partners, Johnson Tiles, we were able to offer a complete service for this project, covering all the requirements of this complex station.
