Foster + Partners has won the competition to design Cardiff Interchange, the city’s central bus station. Part of the wider Central Square regeneration masterplan for the area, also by Foster + Partners, the interchange is being relocated closer to the Cardiff Central train station in an effort to allow greater integration of all transportation networks and accommodate future growth in passenger traffic.
Equipped with airport-style lounges, shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as office and residential space, the mixed-use development focuses on "legibility and ease of access with the aim of transforming the area into a new transport hub for the city."
“We are delighted that our design for the Cardiff Interchange has been selected. The new bus interchange is a vital component of the entire Central Square redevelopment project, which will completely revamp the image of the city. We are committed to delivering a bus station that provides the best passenger experience to the city’s residents, commuters and visitors. We are excited about working with the City of Cardiff council and Rightacres Property Limited to give Cardiff the world-class transport infrastructure it deserves,” says Gerard Evendon, Senior Executive Partner at Foster + Partners.
