Pioneer Village Station in Toronto, Canada by aLL DESIGN

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

Article source: aLL DESIGN

Pioneer Village station straddles the border of York Region, beneath the intersection of Steeles Avenue West and Northwest Gate, anchoring a corner of York University Campus. The station will serve as an integrated regional transport hub serving up to 20,000 subway passenger trips daily, providing 1,881 commuter parking spaces and two separate regional bus terminals. The location is otherwise underdeveloped and it is intended that the station entrances and bus terminals will create a public focal point that will serve the future development of the surrounding area, beginning with Steeles Avenue West.

With its proposal “Under one roof” White Arkitekter won the design competition for a new station and City Hall in the southern Swedish city of Växjö.

This new ‘living room’ is open, welcoming everyone from teenage girls and senior citizens to municipal employees and visitors. The building also creates a new silhouette in the city.

Stockholm Central Station in Sweden by Tengbom Architects

Tuesday, January 10th, 2017

Article source: Tengbom Architects

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.

Central Bus Station (ZOB) Pforzheim in Germany by METARAUM Architekten BDA

Friday, November 11th, 2016

Article source: METARAUM Architekten BDA

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.
