It's nice that there is a sheltered space, but you need to consider how much solar heat gain there would be inside that space, given that it looks like that it is completely glazed. Is the step up to the bus stop necessary? In fact, how would one get onto the bus? You'd be better off without the step, and thus losing the ramp. I feel that having the different roofs for the open and closed space creates a very alien space. Maybe try having the same roof and creating a better blend between the two spaces. Give the design considerations section of this site another read :-). Sorry for seeming overly critical but just my two cents :-). One last thing, try using Sketchup's styles. It's default style looks very tacky.

It seemed like you took all the requirements of this bus stop and tried to meet all of them. Its a good approach, but there are some subjective requirements that are more important and not listed, such as aethestics, originality, etc.

Dynamic Bus Stop.

Submitted by efuchs on July 07, 2009

This design attempts to bring bus stops to the basics.

The design has two clearly differenced parts. The waiting place iself (open), and a concealed space to be used in case of harsh weather. This assures a comfortable use at all times, all weathers.

The enclosed space is located in a way it won´t affect visibility from the open space.

Accesibility is very important in this design, which features easy wheelchair access.

The curved ceiling (and its bright color) of the open space give the bus stop a dynamic feel.
