Stoke Bus Station Building – 26 Mar 2013
The Grimshaw designed Stoke on Trent City Centre Bus Station will officially open to the public on Tuesday 26th March. The architects won an international design competition for this building back in 2010. The project forms a significant step in the city’s redevelopment plan. Situated on a prominent site on the boundary of the city centre alongside the ring road, the scheme offers spectacular distant views, whilst the character and landscape of its location has been a strong source of inspiration for the design.

Bus Station in Osijek – 16 Oct 2012
This building was constructed on the principle of public-private partnerships. The urban solution of the bus station building was in many ways defined by its placement in the urban tissue. The longitude of the city situated on the River Drava is reflected in the positioning of the bus station building on the parcel of land.

Design: Capita Symonds

Blackburn Bus Station Building – 11 Aug 2012
Designed by Capita Symonds – on behalf of Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council – the new station will be situated in the heart of the town centre on the site of the former market, adjacent to the town’s shopping centre and a new market development. The relocation of the bus station to the new site will increase footfall outside the shopping centre and the new market, while maintaining a direct link with the rail station and the nearby cathedral quarter development.

Bus Station Hoofddorp
At the beginning of the year 2003 a bus station was built on the forecourt of Hoofddorp’s Spaarne Hospital. This facilities block is located in the middle of a square and is a public area in the form of an island that serves as a junction for the local bus service. The design of this kind of building is generally neutral, but here the aim was to create a strong, individual image that was less austere and generic. Hence, the building was designed in the tradition of Oscar Niemeyer as a cross between white modernism and black Baroque.

Arriva Headquarters
Situated closely to the entry of new tolls at Guimarães – South motorway A11, the new centre of operations of Arriva-Portugal, a public transport company with a large deployment in the Minho region, came to solve a logistical problem of the company replacing the former location in the heart of Guimarães, by another of great accessibility.
