    BuckleyGrayYeoman's designs for the Grade II Listed Piccadilly Circus Underground Station have been shortlisted in the Future Project Award category of the 2014 MIPIM UK Awards. The proposals include the restoration of the Grade II listed Art Deco interior and major improvements to the quality of the retail space around the perimeter of the station hall. Above the station, it is proposed that the iconic Eros statue is raised 1m into the air above its current position, bringing natural light into the station for the first time in its 86-year history. It is intended that the world famous sculpture is raised onto a glazed drum to allow natural light into the station and create a dramatic halo of light around the sculpture itself.
