Poole Bus Station
Design: Penson Architects
The 40-year-old Wilts & Dorset Poole Bus Station, renovated by Penson Architects, resembles a living dream. It a giant mural, based on views of various local activities, such as wind-surfing which gives the appearance of a huge piece of glass reflecting the station activities below.
With exquisite lighting, the building includes an outdoor corridor leading to bus departure points as well as the shopping centre.
Moving beneath the mural, different textures, shapes and patterns materialise to form larger diverse elements that takes visitors by surprise.
