Norreport Train Station is the busiest train station in Denmark with around 250000 people passing daily. The new train station and the surrounding urban space will be a new attraction for the area and a natural gathering place.
The project is conceived as a series of rounded, almost floating roofs covering individual transparent glass pavilions. All station facilities will be visible and easily accessible and the station will appear like an open and welcoming public space.
The project wants to show that Copenhagen is proud to be called the world’s best bicycle city.
This is why all bicycle parking will be a visible and central element in the future urban space.
In order to create a clear hierarchy between the area for bicycles and the area for city life, all bicycle parking is placed 40 cm below the city floor. The bicycle parking will be lighted by innumerable LED lights in the night.
Furthermore 11 ventilation towers will be placed on the plaza surrounding the train station. They will provide fresh air to the underlying train platforms. The towers will also function as lightning on the plaza and as digital information pillars with fully integrated LED screens for information about train departures, cultural events, advertisement etc.
