Architect: Architectural Resource Team, Ceiling Subcontractor: TP Acoustics
CHALLENGE:As one of the biggest users of the Phoenix bus system, Maryvale was selected by the city for an upgraded, centralized transit station to provide patrons with a safe, comfortable center, which included an exterior ceiling system. INFLUENCE:The Phoenix Transit Station wanted to create synergy with structures in the surrounding neighborhood and meet safety and performance requirements. SOLUTION:The ceiling was an integral part of the new design, which is why Hunter Douglas was chosen to provide its Deep Box 2 exterior ceiling system in a reflective metallic green. The company’s exterior ceiling system, with approximately 13,000 1-in. × 16-ft. metal panels, was installed. Recessed LED light fixtures provide excellent nighttime visibility, deterring vandalism and enhancing personal safety. A testament to the partnership between the manufacturer, the city and the architect, the result was both purposeful and architectural. Serving approximately 804,000 people annually, the new, centralized station has already become a source for public pride in the community. “This station has served as a catalyst for development and is raising the bar for future developments,” said Pawar. null
