Mecanoo, in collaboration with engineering consultancy Movares, has been chose to redevelop the Ede train station in the Netherlands. An important entry for the city and Veluwe National Park, the design hopes to transform the station into a “showpiece” and vibrant center for the Veluwse Poort.

“The vision of the design is defined by an unobtrusive appearance; the natural environment serves as a starting point for the characteristic materialization that connects the buildings and the station square, emphasizing the area’s built identity,” described Mecanoo. 

“The open wooden canopy of the station allows for soft light to come in and offers remarkable views of the Mauritskazerne and surrounding landscape. Because of the concentration of mobility flows, transfer times between different modes of transportation will be short. Besides being sustainable, the transparent design and wide station passageway will provide an environment that is secure.”

We will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
