Starship - Norwich Bus Station

Beam me up - Norwich


The distinctive new bus station is an instantly recognizable landmark, with it's canopy spanning 2,200 square meters in size - providing an impressive addition to the city's skyline. At the centre of the larger, ‘plectrum’ shaped canopy, translucent fabric panels have been used to allow natural light to penetrate and reach the main concourse below the 15m span cantilever canopy trusses. The second ‘boomerang’ canopy is separate to the main structure and therefore allows air to circulate between the canopies to help reduce the accumulation of fumes from the buses below.
