BUS SHELTER

material: 3D rendering
Date: 2004

 

At the intersection of two existing main streets in Montreal (St-Laurent and De La Gauchetière), a new bus shelter has been carefully conceptualized considering the site-specific conditions such as the users, the architecture and the weather in this area. A design that is both practical and aesthetically suitable was created. The structure is made out of glass and metal. The metal serves to anchor the structure to the concrete sidewalk. The roof and walls are made of glass, but the roof is tinted in order to create shadow during the hot summer. The bench is made of a dark wood for aesthetic reasons and to prevent the seat from getting too cold during the winter. The structure protects users from the wind and rain. A large bench with armrests is particularly suitable for users, such as frequent elders carrying their grocery bags.
