The mission behind this project was to create a bus terminal that included waiting space, office space and a restaurant within. The structure is a simple steel and glass rectangle with two atriums on either side where the floors taper forward above the other. The entire structure is encapsulated in a steel mesh that diminishes the need for curtains or blinds while the atrium spaces are exposed as to maximize sunlight within. The building is pushed back from the sidewalk about 10 feet allowing light into the underground park- ing garage. On either side of the main structure is a glass-enclosed fire-escape that runs down the entire length of the building.
