D5 Architects wins 'landmark' bus station

  • Comment
D5 Architects has won the competition to design the new 'landmark' bus station in Chatham, Kent ( Marks Barfield shortlisted for 'landmark' bus station ).

Contest organiser Medway Council 'unanimously' plumped for the Birmingham-based practice ahead of Marks Barfield, Space Craft Architects, NPS Property Consultants, Aedas and Arup.

The firm, which has previously worked on the inflatable Heathrow Airport bus and coach station ( D5 inflates vast roof for Heathrow ), will now be asked to come up with detailed designs for the £4 million facility.

The proposed station will sit on the site of the town's Sir John Hawkins Way car park, and will link to the existing pedestrianised High Street and rail station.

According to the judges, the practice showed both 'design flair' and a 'very early grasp of the issues facing Chatham.'

Part of the ongoing £20 million Medway Waterfront Regeneration Strategy, the scheme is billed as key to the improvement of the region's transport infrastructure, which will need to handle an expected 20 per cent rise in population over the next two decades.
