The Arbor Terrace station concept, presented here for consideration, is inspired by Madison community values. Among those included for focus are a commitment to environmental conservation, expression through arts and crafts, and the celebration of distinctive neighborhoods. As a key piece of civic architecture, with units distributed citywide, a station design inspired by the values of its people will harmonize with varied settings ranging from residential boulevards to our energetic college campuses and rising urban avenues.
The Arbor Terrace concept station is intended to employ simple construction methods with component parts that can be mass-produced to fit various station configurations. The central supports are intended to be steel columns with a crossbeam that includes integrated programmable RGB LED down-lighting to colorfully illuminate a resin skylight. The column structure supports an aluminum canopy and green roof. The green roof is intended to use a wildflower tray system and to drain water towards the wind shelter end of the station and scupper off to a rain garden below. The underside of the canopy features wood grain aluminum soffit and integrated warm-white LED lighting strips.
The platform and ramp are intended to be paved with plank style concrete pavers to provide a luxurious feel to the station interior. Integrated planter boxes and the seating bench are envisioned to be precast polished concrete. Bench seating and windscreens may be plain sawn white oak planking of intentionally varying widths. Windows in the wind shelter are designed as glass.
