“Off the Rails” relates to the historical context of Methven. Tapping into the lines of Methven being the terminus of a historical railway system of the late 1800’s. The frame is comprised of a skeleton of recycled railway sleepers supplied locally in the Canterbury region. The walls are made up of local, recycled pallets in filled with a layer of cob, for strength and shelter. by up-cycling these materials we are transforming what was previously the end of a journey into what now facilitates the beginning of one. These materials also provide an earth and farmyard aesthetic that ties into the Methven experience. Located on Racecourse Avenue near the Ski Time Methven hotel. The shelter caters comfortably for 20 people all year round and provides a suitable shelter for all weather conditions. With its move-able barn doors and variety of seating arrangements our bus shelter will make a trip to the local mountains a social and enjoyable experience for all.
