I'm coming above ground and out of darkened rooms with my latest work. Surbiton station in Kingston upon Thames in Greater London, UK is a South Western Railway station designed by James Robb Scott, built in 1937 and opened in 1938. Its iconic facade is a darling of art deco architecture, having been featured in TV's Poirot and the Harry Potter movies.
This Grade II listed building has been well maintained and has changed little from its original construction. The main visible changes being an updated name sign above the main ticket hall and the deepening of three windows to allow more light into the retail units.
With all my work in this series, I try to get as close to the original build features as possible. I was surprised that there was so little historical reference for this building. So I apologise if any details are missing.
