Sydney Metro have released sample designs for Pyrmont and Rozelle metro stations are now online following a second successful design principles workshop.
The three different visions for how the stations might look were developed during the workshop process, which was held to develop draft design principles to guide future station design.
The draft principles cover a range of issues including built form, materials, heritage, public art and landscaping. They will help ensure that stations are user-friendly for passengers, visually attractive and fit in with the surrounding area.
The NSW Government Architect and Chairman of Sydney Metro’s Design Review Panel, Peter Mould, said the sample designs had been developed by three design teams each comprising a top architect, landscape architect and public artist in order to test the design principles.
