Rethinking railway stations

Through the realisation of structural redesigns and new utilisation concepts, we further develop railway stations into Places. Today, railway stations are far more than places of transit. They will become points of attraction in people's everyday lives, where leisure and recreation but also work flow harmoniously into each other and no longer represent opposites. We give city dwellers and travellers the opportunity to linger in the most central urban places. Starting from railway stations, we design our smart product portfolio for an intelligent and sustainable city.

Charlottenburg Station

The new Place in your neighbourhood

The Charlottenburg railway station is a place of everyday life and encounters for the inhabitants of the neighbourhood. For travellers and commuters, it is an important hub for passenger traffic.

On the basis of city dialogues and data-based analyses, we take on the individual needs of the neighbourhood and subject the station to a comprehensive redesign - from fundamental renovations in the building to the integration of new utilisation concepts around the station. A particular highlight is the special developed street furniture, which forms a platform for various activities in the neighbourhood.

Pop-up Cubes on the Stutti

Pilot starts on the forecourt

At the station Charlottenburg, more precisely on the "Stutti", we open a neighbourhood platform for the first time. It accommodates a total of three pop-up cubes in a dream made of wood, which, in addition to a gastronomic offer, also offer other services. The changing tenants come from the local environment and share our vision of making urban life better and more attractive through ecologically sound products.

Hamburg Harburg

The green cultural station

The symbiosis of sustainability, culture and quality of life within the station area is particularly noticeable in Harburg. In cooperation with local institutions, the potential of the green Kulturbahnhof (cultural station) is unfolded and a place is created that promotes the ecological commitment of the district.

In addition to intensive gardening work, a bee hotel will be installed in cooperation with the workshop for the disabled. Also, the art association and jazz club in the interlock box benefit from architectural conversion measures.

Dammtor Hamburg

The digital railway station in the heart of the city

As a partner of ITS, we support the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg in the project of integrating innovative urban concepts into cities. Dammtor station is the "gate of ITS" and acts as a hub for new mobility and logistics products. This is where we start and establish - for the first time in Germany - new, digital information systems on the platforms. We take up the link between travel, digitalisation and nature in the form of digital art projects and thus create a link to the adjacent park landscape.

Hamburg Elbgaustraße

The S-Bahn stop with ioki connection

We want to make mobility accessible to everyone at all times, relieve the strain on the roads through active, individual traffic and thereby improve the quality of life in cities. Railway stations offer ideal, stationary points of contact for new mobility solutions. In cooperation with our internal partner ioki, we define feeder stations in the service area as stops for on-demand services that close the gap between the first and last mile. This is also the case at the station “Elbgaustraße”.

Solutions for a sustainable city

In the course of urbanisation, more and more people are moving from rural areas to cities. Dense traffic, long distances, cramped spaces are the result and pollute the environment.
We see urbanisation as an opportunity to rethink living spaces and to transform them in an ecologically meaningful way. Starting from railway stations, we offer new forms for the intelligent networking of mobility and logistics. The further development of railway stations into attractive points of attraction forms the basis for the sustainable design of cities and the return of quality of life to their inhabitants.
