Train stop, U5 line

New building for the “Glauburgstraße” stop on the U5 line, Frankfurt on the Main 2016

The heavily used local train service between Frankfurt city center and the district of Preungesheim is being upgraded to provide barrier-free access. Just/Burgeff Architect’s design for the “Glauburgstrasse” stop on the U5 line emerged from a design-and-build competition organized by VGF, Frankfurt’s public transport company. Informed by the particular urban situation of this stop, an idea developed that goes beyond simply providing a platform and shelter for the waiting passengers.

The Multimodal Interchange project in Vitré comprises the creation of:

– A pedestrian footbridge in Vitré Station, spanning the railway

– An underground car park with 620 spaces, constructed in two phases, and an overhanging pedestrian footbridge, connecting the first footbridge to the “Place de la Victoire” (Victory Square) and thus creating a pedestrian thoroughfare from this square to the Station’s north car park

BUS & TRAIN STATION COMPETITION ENTRY in Belgrade, Serbia by Đorđe Alfirević + Dušan Trifunović & Predrag Marković

Friday, July 11th, 2014

Article source: Đorđe Alfirević + Dušan Trifunović & Predrag Marković

Spatial organization

The mixed-use complex that was the object of the competition was clearly divided on 4 spatial-functional units: A) North (Bus station), B) South (Hotel-Office-Commercial spaces), C) future metro station and D) Railway station. Introversion was the main organizational principle that was used in conceptualization of the complex due to the lack of adequate views and spatial markers towards which the complex could open up to. Proximity of busy transport hubs (Bus station, Railway station and the Inner city ringroad) which go through the location aspire positioning the main content around inner spatial motives (atrium gardens), distant from unsuitable surrounding.

  • HQE certification was a requirement for the travelers building: landscape planning had to be in compliance with said HQE Certification referential. Important concerns were rainwater management, soils management, energy savings, origins of construction materials…
  • The conception and planning of the project had to be balanced enough in order to minimize the topographic impact (i.e. a special attention was given to soils importations/exportations…)

New city rail station at the Cologne Zoo by Rübsamen + Partner Architects BDA Engineers
After Rübsamen + Partner’s design, the rail station Zoo/Flora was realized and finally resolved the previously unsatisfactory situation. Although the zoo is the second largest visitor attraction (right after the cathedral), its old stop near the zoo and the botanical garden was located above ground, but beyond outdated and not even accessible.

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

Article source: STGM Architectes

Built along the St. Lawrence River at the bottom of the Massif de Charlevoix mountain, the Grande Pointe railway station gives clients of the new tourist train and shuttle access to the mountain. Integration with the unique landscape of the region is achieved through the station’s simplicity, scale, intrinsic relationship with the river and materials.

Station Hyllie in Malmö by Metro Arkitekter

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

Article source: 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.

Fullerton And Belmont Stations in Chicago, Illinois by Ross-Barney Architects

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

The design of the Fullerton and Belmont Stations are a balance of many influences and attempts to bridge the perceived gap between safety, accessibility, and connections to neighborhoods by creating a consistent, recognizable branding for the transit system, while providing unique amenities within open-air plazas at each locality.

The plazas enclose controlled entrances into the stations. In the main plazas, fare collection gateways are supported by flanking white brick pylons that lead to monumental stairs, from which lighter stairs connect to the platforms. Within the plazas, concrete columns taper to provide visual relief and a canvass for artwork bearing the weight of the new, sound-dampening track structure above.
