Malmi Station is an important commuting interchange in the outskirts of Helsinki.
The project proposes the modernisation of the Malmi Station and optimisation of the interconnection between the railways, public roads (bus/car generated traffic) and cycle routes, while improving the pedestrian links accessing the surrounding urban areas.
The main concourse is lifted at the level of the main flyover bridge which crosses the railways and offers an easy access to the station for bus, car and cycle users. This concourse also provides useful links to the nearby multi-storey car parks and shopping.
A variety of retail spaces, restaurants/bars, stores and crèche create a focal point for travellers and local residents.
The platforms are kept at the lower level, under the concourse platform.
Created as a sculptural expression of movement and speed, the proposed Malmi Station buildings will became a landmark for Malmi area and Helsinky.
