Vinge Train Station by Henning Larsen Architects

Vinge is a new city to be developed within Frederikssund Municipality north of Copenhagen, Denmark. Covering 350 hectares, it will be the largest urban development project in Denmark. In the middle of the new town plan, a circular station adapts organically to its surroundings and forms the point of departure of the new city development. The station’s urban space and the landscape stretch and meet to span the rails, ensuring that the railway does not divide the town into two parts.

Vinge Train Station has been designed to function as the heart of the development, and to unify the movements of landscape and city. The station’s undulating topography creates a calm centre, as the non-directional elliptical shape brings the surroundings together. Located in the centre of the city, the train station offers convenient access to public transportation. This focus forms one of the many a sustainable aspects of Vinge, as more people will be encouraged to take the train to work and school as opposed to going by car.

Instead of merely functioning as a bridge, the station and the green heart are placed at the same level as the rails, visually and physically connecting the two levels. A space under the station is thereby created, where the covered train platforms and shops are located. Vinge will become a city where diversity and sustainability are essential to its comprehensive development. Vinge Train Station will constitute the centre of the new city.
