Fun yet functional, C-Stock is inspired by the tube lines that run directly beneath the Relay Building in Aldgate East.

Commissioned for the building’s reception space, this striking one-off piece is visible at street level and playfully references the District and Hammersmith & City lines that traverse beneath the site.
The repurposed Underground carriage functions as a waiting area for visitors and a breakout space for workers, helping to attract new tenants from the technology and creative sectors to the area. Decked out with everything needed to enable a functional working environment, C-Stock retains every bit of its original character.
C-Stock sits alongside a reception desk which takes its design from the speed and motion of rolling stock.
Behind the build
The piece was created using elements of a retired C-Stock carriage, found on the District and Hammersmith & City lines between 1970 and 2014.
