Howard Place

Safe Transport Space

BENDIGO

2011

The Howard Place Safe Transport Space is a new civic addition to the City of Greater Bendigo - one which caters for multiple events in the life of the city to suit residents, students and visitors during daylight hours. Crucially it operates as a safe and legible taxi queuing area for Bendigo’s nightclub patrons.

The project came about in response to the Councils initiative to establish a safe waiting area for all but particularly night time users and provide an increased level of personal safety by occasional security presence and with additional assistance from the Salvation Army’s “Chillout Space” program. 

The project creates a lightweight, translucent fixed canopy within the existing trees on site with flexible seating and much-needed toilet amenities for both daytime activities and late-night users.
