New Station Building in Gothenburg by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter

It is an honorable task to design a building that carries such an identity for city life as a train station. In European metropolitan tradition, the train station was often a monumental architectural structure.

A cathedral of modernism which today manages great cultural and historical values. The expression and architecture of the station building must therefore be as timeless as it is future oriented.

Inspired by Gothenburg’s historic Central Station, the development of the infrastructure and the life of the city, it will be a new signature building in the heart of Gothenburg. With the building, the Central station gets a new entrance from north for Västlänken.

An attractive junction point is created here to get more people to travel by public transport in a safe and sustainable urban environment. The project should stand out as a beacon for the railway’s collective significance, sustainability and environmental friendliness.

At the same time, it will be a future-oriented and robust hub where transport, travel, work, leisure, culture, and commerce intertwine with the surrounding city in a functional and beautiful way.

The project has been developed by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter in a team with Bollinger+Grohmann engineers. The Start of construction for the new station building is planned for mid-2024 to be completed at the turn of 2026 – 2027. Source by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter.
