Chatham Waterfront Bus Station

Chatham, Kent

Shortlisted through an OJEU selection process, D5 were successful following competitive interviews and commissioned in June 2007 to undertake a feasibility and site selection study.

Located near Chathams waterfront, the new Dynamic Bus Facility (DBF) forms part of Medway’s £6 billion regeneration programme.  Its central location means that the bus station has no principle entrance and must be approachable from all directions.  With permeability a key principle, platform buildings are nestled within a wider landscaping scheme to provide a strong pedestrian link through the centre of the site and create a bus station within a parkland setting.  Fully glazed buildings with tree like structure and curved copper roofs reflect the natural context and aspiration for transparency.
