Hucknall Pedestrian Links
Wayfinding and Bridge Design





— A Safe and Attractive Link to the Town Centre —

Site Location.

Location Dynamics.


            The Hucknall Town Centre Development masterplan identified, a need for improved wayfinding from the station to the town centre. Through design research a location was identified and a rectilinear form was developed to create a simple yet striking visual presence over the desired direction of travel. The dramatic profile and hard- edged angular form of the bridge echo Hucknall’s industrial past.
