The site posed many challenges– including the requirement to link two new rail platforms whilst allowing space for five bus stands, car parks, taxis and pedestrians. The internal form was designed to direct users to their destination, each element flowing into another so that there is no distinction between bus and rail areas. The curvaceous form of the building evokes a sense of movement, curving several planes and creating complex shapes. This helps to regulate the external mass of the interchange, achieving more intimacy and a less intimidating scale.
