The Sydhavn Metro, Copenhagen
Gottlieb Paludan Architects has developed and designed the five new underground metro stations on the Sydhavn line. The latest knowledge on behaviour and technology has been incorporated into the station design.
The future metro line to Sydhavnen will have five stations and run via the urban development areas in the southern part of the Port of Copenhagen and the old sydhavn quater. The new, deep stations have been developed based on the design of the existing stations and Cityringen; but further developed taking into account the latest knowledge on lighting, layout, accessibility and information systems. The new station design features wider main staircases with escalators, and a new type of skylight has been developed to draw daylight right onto the platforms and also act as new seating areas on the new forecourts. The metro line will be decorated with mega works of art that helps differentiate between the stations. The artworks will be created by selected Danish contemporary artists in collaboration with the Danish State Art Fund.
At the end of the line at Ny Ellebjerg, there will be a transfer point for regional and suburban trains. The station is being prepared for a later extension of the metro to Hvidovre and Frederiksberg.
Gottlieb Paludan Architects has been responsible for the development, design and tendering of all the stations. In addition, we have carried out architectural work and studies in connection with the urban integration of the entire Sydhavn line.
