250,000 people pass through Stockholm’s central station on a daily basis. If you were one of them, you would not have missed all the development that has been going on here between 2008-2014 – and a station that has been fully functional the entire time.
In 2008, we were asked by Jernhusen to modernize and develop large parts of Stockholm’s Central station – one of Sweden’s most important crossroads – and make it possible for the station to manage the challenges of both today and tomorrow. Not least the constantly increasing number of travellers. Due to the requirement for many separate improvements, we were given the opportunity to develop a thorough concept for the development.
”Our vision was to improve the experience of the visitors through modernization and design that exceeded their expectations and at the same time preserve and highlight the fine qualities of the old building”, says Mark Humphreys, chief architect.

The new building is located on the southern shore of Lake Lerchenau. The conceptual orientation perpendicular to the contour lines and to the edge of the bank, as well as the reference to the differences in altitude of the terrain, provide a perfect overview across the lake.

An Urban Landmark
Respectfully set aside from the train station, the new central bus station (Zentraler Busbahnhof or ZOB) is an addition to the historic station building of Pforzheim. It constitutes a concise urban landmark, giving new form to a formerly barren area east of the station building. The historic style of the latter is now supplemented by a contemporary design: The roof segments’ curved edges are derived from typical radii and loops of vehicle movements and road curves. But not only the design had to fulfil highest demands, also the materials of the ZOB were chosen with regard to stability, weather resistance and most of all formability. Thus a total of 6,500 m2 AQUAPANEL® Cement Board Outdoor were used for the exterior ceilings and an exterior wall – as a water- and mould-resistant, robust solution.

The new Ede Wageningen Train Station will be a place where thousands of commuters easily find their way. The gateway to the Veluwe National Park, it will also be a remarkable introduction to the city of Ede. The transport hub has been designed to respond to the growth in passenger numbers and make an expansion of services and facilities available. A striking wooden roof makes the station a unique and vibrant place, a well-integrated and characteristic destination where the comfort of travellers and local residents is put first. The project includes entrance squares to the bus station and train station hall, with detailed landscaping features that integrate the scheme into the surrounding context.

Designed by AREP and SNCF’s Architecture Division, the new multimodal station is located in NortheastParis –in the 19th arrondissement precisely– on RER line E, between Pantin and Magenta stations. It breaks the isolation of this district, which is undergoing extensive overhaul, links the east suburbs of the Paris Metropolitan Region to the city centre, and ensures connections with tramline T3. The station came into service in December 2015, after five years of works, and is expected to handle 85,000 passengers daily by 2023.
