009/270: #BoundsGreen – The Box Style

Bounds Green is a variation on Holden’s “Sudbury Box.” This octagonal shaped station features high sided window frames which allow light into a spacious ticket hall bellow. This concept is repeated across the network and gains it’s name from Sudbury Town station also on the Piccadilly Line. It was actually designed by Holden’s colleague, C.H.James.

Despite it’s crisp and box like form, Bounds Green still includes the popular Modernist design feature of curved window frames, as seen in the street level shop fronts.
