Arnhem Central Transfer Terminal in The Netherlands by UNStudio

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

Article source: UNStudio

The new €37.5m (£27.6m) Transfer Terminal at Arnhem Central Station in the Netherlands has now completed.

The station is the result of an ambitious 20-year project – masterplanned by UNStudio – to redevelop the wider station area; the largest post-war development in Arnhem. Backed by the Dutch government, this transfer hub rewrites the rulebook on train stations and is the most complex of its type in Europe. The station will become the new ‘front door’ of the city, embracing the spirit of travel, and is expected to establish Arnhem as an important node between Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium. The new terminal houses commercial areas, and a conference centre and provides links to the nearby office plaza, city centre, underground parking garage and the Park Sonsbeek. The area around the station will become a place in of itself, with 160,000m2 of offices, shops and a cinema complex.

Transportation Center Redevelopment in Stamford by Studio V Architecture

Thursday, August 22nd, 2013

Article source: Studio V Architecture

STUDIO V Architecture’s design for the Stamford Transportation Center and surrounding area was chosen the preferred scheme in a $500 million redevelopment competition put forth by the Connecticut Department of Transportation. Stamford’s station has grown to become the second largest in the region after Grand Central Terminal, rendering its current disjointed infrastructure and surrounding architecture obsolete. STUDIO V teamed with developer Stamford Manhattan Development Ventures (SMDV) to transform this traffic-congested station into a dramatic new 24-hour community that reconnects Downtown Stamford to the South End and the city’s waterfront.
