DESIGN DESIGNING SPACE BASE
Architect Seda Tabanlı from the project team, who gave information about the design and features of the stations, said, “On the ground floor of the Teferrüç Station, which consists of a ground plus a floor, the crowded groups welcoming the passengers line up comfortably, while the toll booths and station entrance have been resolved in a covered entrance courtyard that will prevent them from being affected by the weather conditions. In addition, there are souvenir shops on the ground floor, offices where station management is located, waiting and sitting areas, toilets and warehouse. It was also planned to display materials belonging to the old ropeway line in the waiting hall. Facade openings will be covered with aluminum joinery and laminated glass. The landscaping of the ground floor surroundings will be created with little intervention to the land, without changing the slopes in its natural state. An escalator and an elevator were planned to reach the first floor where the platform is located. Passengers coming to the first floor will start their journey with the cable car from the platform located here. The plain furnished waiting room is designed to accommodate crowded groups. This floor has a cafe and a terrace. The construction of the curved roof, which is thought to become a symbol, is steel, and its carriers will be resolved together with the glass facade. Roof outer covering is considered as aluminum. The inner surface of the roof will be covered with perforated metal on the insulation material with acoustic absorption feature. While waiting, visitors will be able to watch the view uninterruptedly thanks to the transparent facade. Wide eaves and vertical facade profiles will prevent the negative conditions that the sun rays will create inside the building. "The program and architecture of the new station building is aimed to be a building that is compatible with its immediate surroundings and that the residents of Bursa will be proud of."
