Intent: Redesign of the 10th and Osage lightrail station
Designed: Fall 2005
Services: Programming, conceptual design, architectural services
Narrative: 10th and Osage is a transfer node. Trains go into downtown or on to Union Station. The station is located in a Denver community that would typically take advantage of mass transit.
The design intent was two clasping hands, with trains and pedestrians crossing and intersecting each other.
Recognizing the historical context of place and time, the primary form of the station is a rail section. The covering above is intended to inform the user where trains will stop.
The design solution includes a bus turnaround so more pedestrian traffic has access to the stop.
The intervals of open space and overhead covering are a rhythm which indicates motion and rest.
