In light of the toll of the COVID-19 pandemic, which is expected to be present in some capacity until there is a vaccine, many architects and designers are working on projects with social distancing in mind—a great example here is PriestmanGoode who revisited its 2016 Island Bay train design and updated it to better suit the current climate.
The industrial design studio repurposes spaces that were originally designed for extra seating as bike storage. This move will enable for London commuters to "complete journeys between their home and workplace at either end on bike."
The update of the train design is following an announcement in the United Kingdom, which stated that "rail networks will be re-starting services [...] but will be reducing capacity on board down to as little as 10 percent."
