The remodelling of the bus stop area involved not only the shelter and the service building of the public transport company, but also the reorganisation of public spaces and roads in order to create a completely barrier-free solution. The purpose of the design was to improve pedestrian permeability in the area, passenger comfort, and safety with regards to car and bus traffic flows. The building itself was to become a landmark at the final bus stop (‘final stop – get off’). The floor plan is equivalent to a pair of overlapping volumes. The first of them is divided into three separate units with entrances at the rear – the drivers’ facilities, the technical room and an independent kiosk with a large circle window facing the public space. The capsular shape was used to create an orientation point. The design takes references from atypically conceived bus stop installations from the past to counteract the current uniformist and minimalist trends.

The shelter is designed as a steel structure with mineral wool insulation, covered with an extensive green roof. The facade features standing seam aluminum cladding. The ceiling of the shelter and the cladding of the windowsills are made of larch planks. The paved areas consist of grey concrete paving as required by the roads administrator.
