The renovation concerned mainly the station itself which had an ugly little extension on the façade from the 70's, that was the main thing and I think it's successful.

Then:

-Trees have been of course chosen among slow-growth species.
-The aim of the lighting isn't to make the whole station visible in the night but to underline some of the details of the building. Therefore it isn't "of bad quality".
-Aesthetic value isn't an objective matter and your opinion certainly hasn't more value than anyone else. I personally found that those simple grey poles match really well with the station which is also very simple with its grey-blue stone façade.

I am not sure whether this station was presented in this thread or not, but here is a Central railway station in the second largest city of Sweden, Gothenburg:

Gothenburg Central Station (Göteborgs centralstation, Göteborg C)
The main railway station of Gothenburg and the second largest railway station in Sweden after Stockholm Central Station. The station opened in October the 4th, 1858. Approximately 40 000 travelers visit the station every day. The station is situated in the city of Gothenburg, right by Drottningtorget. The Gothenburg Central Station, Centralhuset and Nils Ericson Terminalen is a part of Resecentrum, Göteborg.
Numerous of railways were built across Sweden in the 19th century. One of the first distances was the one between Gothenburg and Jonsered. As the railway grew more popular, the need for a station emerged. The Gothenburg Central Station was built between the years of 1856-1858. The architect in charge was Adolf Wilhelm Edelsvärd.
Some reconstructions have been made to the station since its opening in 1858. There used to be engine shed by the station but it has been removed. In 1923 a fire destroyed parts of the station, so the interior had to be rebuilt. The current interior design is similar to the 1923 model with wood pillars, glass ceiling and a floor made of limestone.
There are 16 platforms at the station.
Drottningtorget is a junction for trams and lies right by the Gothenburg Central Station. Nordstan, the biggest shopping mall in Scandinavia, is connected to the station by an underground pedestrian tunnel.

Paddington:
The site is a historic one, having served as the London terminus of the Great Western Railway and its successors since 1838. Much of the current mainline station dates from 1854, and was designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. The site was first served by Underground trains in 1863, and was the original western terminus of the Metropolitan Railway, the world's first underground railway.
The complex has recently been modernised, and now has an additional role as the London terminal for the dedicated Heathrow Express airport service. Paddington is in Travelcard Zone 1.
The mainline station's most important long-distance destinations are Bristol, Cheltenham Spa, Cardiff, Exeter, Penzance, Plymouth and Swansea
