Our consortium provided the Station architecture for Phase 1 of the ambitious new Light Rail Transit project in Ottawa — a 12.5 km line that spans the downtown core.
The scope of Phase 1 of the Ottawa LRT included 13 new Stations (10 above-ground stations designed by Adamson and BBB) as well as a new Maintenance and Storage Facility designed solely by Adamson. Our consortium developed a unified suite of stations sharing one brand identity that is both iconic and enduring in its architecture. Designed primarily with Passengers in mind, the Stations are safe, accessible, visually pleasing, and functionally efficient. Careful integration of art across the system, the warmth of the Stations’ materials palette, and ‘acts of place-making’ achieved at selected entrance plazas combine to elevate the Passenger experience, which will expand ridership in the short term and also lead to sustained growth in the long term.
