Alfred Priess | Architectural Lighting Columns
Holstebro Bus terminal
The CitySwan column range was designed and developed as a collaborative effort between Bjarne Schläger, architect MAA, and Morten W. Borup, architect MAA. The column range comprises the following products:
- Bronze 01, 02 and 03
- WALL 130 and 70
- CS basic, HIGH 01 and 02 ( Designed and developed by Bjarne Schläger Design ApS )
For some time Vestforsyning A/S, the city of Holstebro and Alfred Priess A/S have looked for a suitable project where architectural designed lighting columns would be an integrated part of the design. A meeting with Alfred Priess A/S in Vinderup was quickly arranged when planning the renovation of the bus terminal and subsequently Stationsvej right out to Gråkjær Arena started. Several different architectural columns, types of material and surfaces were discussed. Alfred Priess A/S had just completed some design proposals where various items from the CitySwan series were combined in a new and exciting way. The original geometry of the wall-mounted arms was transferred to the column arms and welded onto them in staggered and different heights.
The first stage is the actual bus terminal which was completed in November 2014. The bus terminal is really a hub where many passengers and buses are moving continuously. A good overview and the right lighting are also important safety elements. The finished terminal is striking with a high degree of design and has received many positive comments from the users of the bus terminal.
As the renovation of Stationsvej continues, lighting columns from the same design series are being installed, and this way a beautiful and harmonious impression of this approach road to Holstebro is being ensured. For the time being 23 columns have been delivered. The cooperation with Vestforsyning A/S and the city of Holstebro went very well. Alfred Priess A/S is looking forward to deliver the next design columns for the surroundings of the station building.
