Nearby

Kings PlaceJust 150 metres from King's Cross and St Pancras stations and with a waterside setting, the Dixon-Jones designed Kings Place combines the offices of The Guardian newspaper with a concert hall and two art galleries. As you'd expect from the architects behind the recent improvements to the Royal Opera House and National Portrait Gallery it's a well designed complex of curvaceous surfaces and appealing public spaces. The concert hall, London's first to be purpose-built since the Barbican Concert Hall over 25 years ago in 1982, includes a stunning wood-lined 420-seat auditorium. Two orchestras - the London Sinfonietta and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment - have set up their headquarters here, a place where they can rehearse and perform as well as teach music.
