Bus Station Square
Reflecting the proportions of Preston Bus Station, the proposed main square balances circulation and waiting with the potential to host small and large scale events and activities.
The design responds to grid lines and movement formed by the natural circulation provided by the wider street and internal bus station design and access points. The main north south spine follows the bus station elevation connecting all of the entrances and Coach Station. Perpendicular paths provide direct access to Old Vicarage, Crooked Lane/Lord Street across the green space and also through the popular St.John's Shopping Centre which links to Preston Markets and the soon to be developed cinema and restaurant complex.
A green spine provides a strong line to the western edge of bus station square with the tall slender tree stems mirroring the vertical beams and façade elements within the city's bus station.
