The Gallery | Perth bus terminal

A striking train and bus station has opened in the Australian city of Perth.

Butler train and bus terminal was designed by Coniglio Ainsworth Architects, with Arup as structural engineers.

With more than 2,000 commuters expected to use it every day, access and layout were critical factors in the design.

Arup buildings leader in Western Australia Alistair Avern-Taplin said: “This structure really does set a new standard of design for metropolitan train stations in Perth.

“It’s a credit to the vision of architects Coniglio Ainsworth, and the team at Arup is very proud to have assisted them to achieve the functional requirements necessary, without compromise.

“On many levels, the station’s design is progressive and it’s a credit to the Public Transport Authority in terms of its willingness to accept and encourage this new approach to station design.”
