Gottlieb Paludan Architects prepared a competition proposal for three U-Bahn stations on the Hamburg Horner Rennbahn line.
The new route will connect an additional 13,000 citizens to the metro network and comprises an expansion of the existing Horner Rennbahn, a new station to be constructed to the east at Stoltenstraße and a terminal station at Dannerallee.
The design concept is basically the same for all stations, with a simple and rigorous choice of material. To facilitate differentiation between the stations, the lighting is based on the location and surroundings of the individual station.
As an example, the flickering light at Stoltenstraße is inspired by the light penetrating the many trees in the area, while an acoustic image of a birdcall draws some the qualities of the terrain down to the platform. The station entrances have a simple design appearance and can also be identified by means of the lighting.
The project was made in partnership with the German Blauraum architecture studio.
