Grimshaw Architects’ reimagined vision for Sydney Bus Stops, amounting to over 300 came to fruition as part of the City of Sydney’s large upgrade in late 2022.

Grimshaw’s curated approach meant that each bus shelter was equipped with street furniture displaying functional architectural detail, along with new advertising panels, toilet pods and kiosks.

Lighting designers Electrolight used their expertise to carefully illuminate these state of the art shelters using over a staggering 1700m of Australia made Coolon linear strip. Robust in form to withstand the nature of public facilities, Coolon’s linear strip sits neatly within each bus shelter providing a practical, uniform glow providing overall consistency throughout all the shelters.
