The latest artist impressions for the new Bayswater Station were released today with the progressed designs including two new escalators and refined design aesthetic.
With the station set to become a major transport hub, it reflects regular community feedback for architecture which references heritage. The ribbing finishes across the structure is inspired by the area’s rail history, which dates back to 1888, and was inspired by the prominent fluting on Perth’s current and past passenger trains.
Community feedback also inspired additional design enhancements, including cream coloured concrete to help better integrate the station into the local community. The shelter design has also been updated with a wave design; covering approximately 70 per cent of the platforms with vertical screens to reduce wind.
Another key feature is the station’s internal design was revised to include one escalator providing access to each platform, in addition to the station’s four lifts and stairs.
This final design also reflects feedback from the Office of the Government Architect, State Design Review Panel, METRONET Noongar Reference Group and the METRONET Access and Inclusion Reference Group.
Landscaping and public art treatments will be finalised in the coming months.
Recognising the important role Bayswater Station has plays in the town centre, these detailed designs are the culmination on more than two years of community consultation , through online surveys, community events, briefings, presentations, enquiries and community reference groups on the station’s design.
The updated design has now been submitted to the Western Australian Planning Commission for development approval.
