An apparently subtle restoration belies significant organisational shift at this grade II listed and iconic bus station. Shifting bus stands to one side, relocating the coach station, providing an information hub and rationalising retail units has reinstated legibility and increased the public realm. Small things make the project sing. The reuse is a major contribution to sustainability and conservation has addressed the structure’s durability.
