The transformation of the main entrance from Union Street

The significance of secondary access to Union Street has been intensified through the introduction of large format porcelain tiles which create a dialogue with the ashlar sandstone and granite of the original building.

The large format gates feature ornate metalwork based on the motifs and symbols found in the original station environment.
