Mayrhofen Train Station



Mayrhofen Train Station is a transportation junction with, at certain times, an exceptionally high frequency. The different transportation “ribbons” are positioned so that they allow a direct linking of all factors: rail, bus transport, taxi-buses, Kiss and Ride facility, car parking garage. A roof form that follows each of the individual areas as they extend in length and that articulates them by using arched forms ­ some flatter, others steeper ­ connects all the functions to create a noticeable and legible overall figure. Rows of trees emphasis the linear design of the train station building.
