Helmond Station

How to create a meaningful station environment in an era in which the classical station typology is evaporating? Modern travelling, being almost immaterial, has become ‘traveling light’: no need to buy tickets anymore, paying with your cell phone, high frequent intensities of train systems preventing you to wait for long.

This modern comfort raises the question: what is left of the iconography and identity of a station(area)? In most cities there still is a need for identity and an urge to interpret the station area as one of the meaningful focus points in the urban scheme.

StudioSK, Movares has developed a strategy for this: LANDSCAPING THE STATION. In this design strategy all elements of the surroundings of the station are being considered as an equal part of the project; buildings but also civil structures, station plaza and art in public space.

Thus bringing people together in a multipurpose transit area inviting people to stay and relax in a peaceful atmosphere which puts in perspective the hectic of travelling.
