The breaking of the traditional rectangular plan enables the creation of squares, urban spaces and commercial facades towards the surrounding streets. The design integrates elements that allow for further the development of the existing city center while still preserving the building’s clarity and usability.

The terminal building offers a balance between the need of the user to reach the platform as fast and efficiently as possible, and the desire of the developer to encourage the visitor’s journey through the commercial space. By utilizing the natural topography of the site, the structure keeps a continuous connection with nearby urban focal points and allows quick and convenient entrances for all users of the complex such as buses, light rail, train, taxis, bicycles and private cars dropping off passengers.
