Urban Bus Shelters, Auckland, New Zealand
Accoya wood has been used in the redevelopment of some 40 year old bus shelters owned by Auckland Transport. The project was completed in time for the 2011 Rugby World Cup. The new over bridge shelters are a combination of glass, graphics, Accoya wood and steel, resulting in an “urban lounge” design, as one local blogger described it, with an eclectic mix that pays homage to the changing community around it. The inverted-L-shaped Accoya wood structures gives an open, airy and modern feel to help the user feel comfortable and have a fantastic vista of the surrounding areas.
