As well as extending new lines into the suburbs, some central London stations had to be rebuilt due to the increase in passenger traffic and lifts replaced with escalators. Bond Street station on the Central line was completed in 1927. Based on the same design principles that Holden developed for the Morden extension stations, the façade was rationalised even further with a plain stone surface, three wide openings for entrances and the elevated window incorporating the station name and stained glass roundel design.
