Description:
The façade of Woolwich Station is designed with the military background of the Woolwich district in mind. During World War I the Memorial Plaque, or Dead Man’s penny, was minted in this district. Features of this bronze memorial plaque were used for the design of Woolwich Station. Part of the façade has been decorated with images of the Dead Man’s Penny. The image is made with perforation in the cladding and a print on the windows. The spectacular entrance of the station has been made out of cast bronze panels. These panels are cast by Pentair-Nijhuis in the town of our headquarters Winterswijk, Netherlands. The gates of the station were also developed by Sorba and were tested for forcibly entry according to the strict LPS-1175/SR-3 terms.
