A positive experience is provided by removing barriers and adding opportunities to socialize and circulate. There is even extra space in the plaza area for food kiosks or market stalls.
We put extra focus on the landscaping of the outdoor areas so people can enjoy their journey. A row of canopy trees behind the seating area provides shade and protects from chilly Alberta winds.
Multiple points of entry are fully accessible and easy to locate, making it better for transit users to navigate the station and get to where they’re going faster.
Natural light was a large focus of the design for the interior. Full glazing not only saves on electricity, but also improves safety by allowing more visibility in and out.
