St Enoch Subway Refurbishment

St Enoch Subway Refurbishment
The materials for the canopy pop-ups are small panels of glass to form a smooth external skin with a filigree structure beneath
with a durable base of stainless steel panels at the junction with the pavement. The pop-ups make best use of new technologies and design solutions while acknowledging the individual station’s contribution to the urban landscape.

To complement this, a large format off-white porcelain tile is used around the new entrance internally and below ground walls. The choice of material offers a robust and practical solution to a highly trafficked location. While this material is synonymous with subway
architecture the format and layout provides a contemporary expression of a traditional material. The material continues internally to
reflect a seamless transition between ground and below and to unify the station language from street level to platform level.

The structure and material differentiates the station entrances from the adjacent retail and commercial buildings, its transparency allows views through to the old ticket office from Buchanan Street. Station entrance doors

The doors are seen as an important element in the façade composition. When the station is closed the doors form part of the image of the station, providing a positive contribution to the elevation after lock down. The doors when open, will aid user flow through the pop-ups.

The principles behind the lighting design promote the enhancement of the architectural design and materials. The integration of the
lighting within the fabric of the building is key to the success of an unobtrusive proposal. In terms of lighting strategy, the primary element incorporated within the pop-up is the signage. Up-lighting to the new canopy provides the main source of illumination ensuring that the structures remain activated after dark. Secondary lighting is also generated
