Park Royal tube station, Western Avenue, W5
The Wiki entry says that the "current station building (opened in 1936) was designed by Welch & Lander in an Art Deco/Streamline Moderne style influenced by the Underground's principal architect Charles Holden LinkExternal link . The station buildings are formed from a series of simple interconnecting geometric shapes. Plain red brick masses are accented with strong horizontal and vertical glazed elements. A large circular ticket hall with high level windows gives access to the platform stairs. The enclosures for these form cascades of glazed steps down to the platforms. The most prominent feature of the station building is the tall square tower adjacent to the ticket hall. This is adorned with the Underground roundel; and represents a visible locator for the station from some distance. Attached to the station building and across the small open space of Hanger Green are two curved three-storey retail and office buildings built in the same style as the station." LinkExternal link .

The station, and the adjoining shops and flats, are Grade II listed LinkExternal link .
