SMCC - Coffee Shop / Bus Stop

Located on Fort Street; the existing bus stop leaves something to be desired. With Maine winters being long and quite cold a new shelter is needed. You are given the challenge to create a new bus stop with seating for 20 in an enclosed heated shelter, and covered exterior seating for 10. Along with the bus stop you will create a coffee stand/shop that can be accessed from inside of the bus stop, as well as outside (walk up window). There are many site constraints; the building must fit on the existing bus stop site, you will need to make allowances for the surrounding buildings, roads, and any permanent obtrusions.

You will need to consider a variety of elements, such as
-View and site line for those waiting for the bus.
-Traffic flow at entrance and exits; also circulation in coffee areas.
- Equipment and storage to run a small coffee shop.
-Seating arrangements, will fixed or movable seating be more appropriate.

To begin
-you will need to figure placement and size of structure, traffic flow, and circulation.
-create a concept that will support your design decisions.
-once a building size and shape is determined, create bubble diagrams to layout schematics of the space.
-create a drawing of the front fa├žade, will your building pick up on details on the surrounding buildings, or stand out with its own defining elements.

Once the schematic design has been approved
-create a rendered floor plan, elevations, and furniture plan to scale.
- research and collect images of furnishings that will be used.
- research and select appropriate finishes for your space, all spaces will be considered – ceilings, walls, floors
- create a finish board; include any lighting or signage ideas.
