Wilkinson Eyre Architects, Bath Bus Station
November 23, 2009

Wilkinson Eyre Bath Bus StationWilkinson Eyre Architects has completed its bus station project in the UNESCO World Heritage City of Bath Spa, UK.
The scheme, a complex transport interchange on an incredibly sensitive and tight site, is an exciting new contemporary structure, built in the centre of one of an World Heritage Cities in the World. Instead of trying to emulate the traditional architecture of Bath, Wilkinson Eyre Architects has combined a mix of glass, steel, aluminium and stone to create a contrast to the surrounding buildings and make a composition of the new and the old.
The basic diagram of the scheme relocates the bus station to the same side of the street as the original Grade II* listed Bath Spa railway station by Brunel, improving the visual connection and safe interchange between the two vital transport nodes.  This connection will be completed through the introduction of a new civic plaza in the second phase of the redevelopment.
