The aim of this project was to find suitable high quality design solutions to see the regeneration of the Grade II listed Preston Bus Station into a fit for purpose, sustainable, modern day facility which looks to introduce high quality facilities for young people and accessible public open space within the heart of the city centre whilst ensuring improved highway infrastructure and pedestrian safety.
Our design incorporated a Youth Centre and sports hall. The proposal aimed to create an inclusive and dynamic environment throughout the new square, youth centre and refurbished bus station. The youth centre has been arranged so as to address and offer interaction to the new square.
The main mass of the building lines the route between St Johns Shopping Centre and the proposed main Bus Station Entrance. The height and massing created by the sports hall provides a dominant presence akin to that of the original bus station.
