The New South Wales Minister for Transport and Infrastructure, Andrew Constance, unveiled a prototype for the Grimshaw designed Sydney CBD and South East Light Rail (CSELR) stops, in Moore Park Sydney.
Minister Constance engaged Grimshaw Architects for the design, who said their concept “embraces principles of modern, elegant and sustainable design, reinforcing the CSELR’s role as a stimulus for efficient inter-modal public transport and as a place making driver”.
“The stops design prioritises passenger experience, functionality and enduring materiality,” Grimshaw Architects Managing Partner Andrew Cortese said.
“They are intended to complement the urban contexts, heritage circumstances, and landscapes of their individual locales.”
Using a distinctive design language, Grimshaw has created a ‘Kit of Parts’ for the line wide component system – a family of elements that includes canopies, integrated services, cabinets, totems and furniture.
The ‘Kit of Parts’ design methodology integrates CCTV & PA systems, smart card (Opal) technology, communications, signalling and customer information as well as strategies for locating and selecting equipment, lighting, materials and finishes. This integrated system will establish a unique identity for Sydney while offering climatic amenity and legible wayfinding.
