Contemporary Shelters

Poligon's VIA Series of shelters highlights a clean and contemporary look while retaining the warmth and familiarity of traditional park structures. The VIA Series contains four models: the Wayside, Portal, Gateway and Crossing. These shelters work independently or, when combined, form distinctive modular structures that suit any park application. For example, pictured is a custom Crossing with two nested Gateways. The four structures in the VIA Series come standard with cast-iron finials and square banded columns. Optional laser-cut gable ornamentation makes it possible to customize them for any site.
