“Szerelmey have undertaken all the external hard landscaping to Adam’s Place, to create a public space connecting the new station with Lower Bridge Street. This new area has a number of stunning features, which have been developed and implemented by the Szerelmey Design Team. A covered, elevated walkway traverses Adam’s Place providing pedestrian access to the station shopping mall entrance. The walkway is supported on three giant Y shaped structures that dominate the planning at ground level. The base of each support is incorporated into three substantial water features or ‘mirror pools’, custom designed by Szerelmey, and clad in 50mm thick Nero Assoluto granite. Szerelmey were also responsible for the five large planters clad in terracotta/faience bricks. Each planter has a number of light emitting bricks with tiny fibre optic strands embedded that transmit a flood of light when illuminated from behind. These light bricks were custom made for the client and the planters are totally unique.” (Adam’s Place, Szerelmey)
