New concept for transit stops
Gottlieb Paludan Architects has designed a new concept for transit tops for buses and trams in three Swedish cities; Göteborg, Mölndals and Partille.
The first stops will be established in 2023 and a total of up to 900 stops are expected to be replaced or newly established in the three municipalities over the coming years. Gottlieb Paludan Architects' design concept is characterised by standardised and modular wooden units that can be assembled and adapted to different contexts without compromising the identity of the concept. In addition to the stop itself, the concept includes benches, signage, litter bins, bicycle parking, etc.
The transparent wood and glass design of the stops contributes to a comfortable and safe travel environment, while the green roofs and integration of trees and plants support biodiversity. The integrated bicycle parking spaces will reinforce the local bicycle culture and promote access to different modes of transport.
The concept is suitable for large and small urban stops and uses FSC certified wood as the supporting element.
