Station Hyllie in Malmö by Metro Arkitekter

Hyllie is the first station you reach when travelling by train from Copenhagen’s Kastrup airport and is therefore Malmö’s gateway to Copenhagen. This is no traditional station building – we have been working with other elements instead. The large round roof (diameter 45 m) – lit from below using uplights – hovers like a UFO above the station entrance. The roof is perforated by 52 round lantern lights which allow daylight to penetrate right down to the platforms, thereby eliminating any sense of an underground station.
Daylight and lines of sight have acted as important parameters for creating a safe environment. The station is a regional and local train station with four tracks and two platforms. Bartenbach LichtLabor of Innsbruck are responsible for the lighting concept. The artistic decoration has been carried out by Kristina Matusch of Malmö.
