Shawford Station

Railway Station Building

Renovation of a disused Victorian waiting room and ticket office for the Three Rivers Community Rail Partnership to provide a flexible community space and café.

The Project

Acting as lead designers and working alongside specialist contractors, ep projects designed and specified the restoration and fit-out of the former ticket office and waiting room at Shawford Station, near Winchester.


Desired Outcomes

To create a vibrant community space that attracts the local community, railway travellers and walkers and cyclists from the numerous local trails and ensuring that the building can operate in a more sustainable and energy efficient way.


The Challenge?

Working within the constraints of a late-Victorian structure with solid masonry walls, timber vaulted roof and timber sash windows to undertake a restoration that caters for its new occupants while respecting the original character of the building.



How did we Help?

We reviewed the level of remedial works and subsequently produced a proposed layout and interior design scheme, which we consolidated into a scope of works, specification and drawings for tender.


What are the Benefits?

A new lease of life for a disused railway building that creates a place for the community and the wider public, who can travel there in a sustainable way.
