Albury Railway Station NSW, Australia (2018)

A loving heritage restoration sees this historic building furnished with brand new Termini Seats.

Albury Railway Station first opened in 1882, when it was seen as a turning point towards Australian Federation as it was the first large transit stop to be built on the border of Victoria and New South Wales.

The two states still used different gauge train tracks, so the longest undercover platform in the southern hemisphere (at the time) was built at Albury, to allow passengers to transition between lines.

The Australian National Heritage List reports, “The connection of the New South Wales and Victorian railway systems at Albury-Wodonga gave a dramatic boost to the cause of Federation.

“The connection was a long-heralded and much-vaunted engineering achievement, which was crowned with the architectural triumph of Albury Railway Station Building.”

More than 130 years on, the grand, symmetrical Victorian Italianate building has undergone a refurbishment by Degnan Construction including clock tower cleaning, fresh paint and upgrades of lighting and seats.

Street Furniture Australia’s Termini Seat was chosen to provide places to rest throughout the station’s indoor waiting areas. The polyurethane body in standard colour Terracotta complements the heritage colours.

Termini’s generous back provides lumbar support, and high DDA armrests help older travellers sit and stand more easily.

Sixteen three and four-seater Termini configurations were installed, some with wide, low tables for your bag, newspaper and coffee.

The refresh also includes new accessible bathrooms, hearing loops and tactile indicators.

Barangaroo Ferry Wharf

Ferry travellers can now alight on the doorstep of the Barangaroo parklands, shopping and eating precinct, commercial office towers and apartments, with the opening of a contemporary wharf. Cox Architecture says the passenger interface was the primary focus for the design team, who crafted the Ferry Hub to provide “a seamless and sculptural environment with weather protection, superb views of Sydney harbour and efficient, functional passenger flows in a safe and secure context.” The aesthetic aims to reflect “the maritime qualities of Sydney and its iconic harbour,” says the architect. Two new wharves feature two 48m long by 23m wide pontoons that accommodate up to four ferries each, anticipating the thousands of visitors expected to converge on the site each day. Cox says there is capacity to build a third wharf in future. Rows of Mall …

TransLink Northern Busway

TransLink’s $444m Northern Busway project saw new stations connect Brisbane’s northern suburbs to Brisbane City, shopping centres and workplaces. The Lutwyche Busway Station was designed by Cottee Parker Architects and completed in June 2012 by Thiess John Holland. In its first year TransLink says the network supported more than 9.7 million trips. By 2016 the busway should cater for 47,000 public transport trips per day,“more than five times the current number,” says BrisConnections CEO Dr Ray Wilson. Cottee Parker Architects specified a suite of Street Furniture Australia products to furnish the new station. Classic Galleria benches and seats, in aluminium finish, feature in the bus terminals and outdoor areas, alongside Arqua drinking fountains, Wide bollards and Plato bins.
