971- /5/10001 Barking Station Booking Ha11

II


Station booking hall. 1961. Architect H H Powell, Eastern Region Architect; Project Architect John Ward. Fair-faced concrete and precast concrete with much glazing. The booking hall stands on a bridge over railway tracks and is fourteen bays long. The concrete roof trusses span the booking hall in three unequal pitches, and are cranked out over the road to provide cover for waiting cars. The fascia to the roof over the road is vertically ribbed fair-faced concrete. High level glazing surrounds the building on all elevations and front is fully glazed. Station trading units have been added in recent years adjacent to the street glazing, but there is still a fine sense of space within the hall. A well proportioned and will detailed building.
