DESIGN BRIEF

The architect's requirements were:

  • To create a space that retained a sense of daylight.
  • To provide a unique roof as a landmark for the bus stations.
  • To provide a number of connected canopies that gave a cloud effect.
  • To provide a means of hiding the florescent lighting and components within the "clouds".

STRUCTURAL SYSTEMS

A series of I beams were used supported on 6 columns joining the two sides of the building.

These beams have a duel purpose on the top side acting as both structural member and gutter.

Underneath the area within the beam is used to conceal the lighting components and fixing cleats.
