Lawrence West Station SmallAccessible.gif is a rapid transit station operated by the Toronto Transit Commission in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located at 665 Lawrence Avenue West in the centre median of Allen Road spanning the underside of Lawrence Avenue West.

Station description

The firm that designed the entire station's architecture was Dunlop Farrow Aitken. The station's architecture comprised of a main entrance building on the south side of Lawrence Avenue West with a wraparound bus roadway and terminal that bridged over the Allen Road expressway. On the north side of Lawrence Avenue West is a secondary entrance that connects to the main entrance via an underground walkway running underneath Lawrence Avenue. The north exterior of the main entrance building is a 300-foot ceramic tile mural by Claude Breeze called "Spacing... Aerial Highways".[1] The station structure is mainly glass panels with a distinctive orange coloured frame.

Passengers can connect to all bus routes in the station bus terminal except for 352 Lawrence West, which can be boarded at the bus stop just outside the entrances. Buses enter the station bus terminal through a roadway beside the northbound Allen Road offramp.

Platform level is situated in the centre median of Allen Road and there are escalators, stairs, and elevators inside the main entrance that lead to platform level. The centre island platform has an open-air design with pillars and brown-tiled benches running down the centre of the platform. In addition, ceiling light boxes, bearing the station name and service direction, run down the length of both sides of the platform. The platform side walls are concrete with angled orange-framed glass panels running the length of the platform on both tracks providing natural sunlight into the station.
