New Eco-Transportation Hub: Introducing vibrancy and livelihood into Uznach’s underused station area

The masterplan for the new eco-transportation hub was developed together with Swiss Railroads and aims to address two main topics: the matter of new mobility and the creation of a regional transportation hub on one side and the issue of quality of life and vibrancy in an underused area around the Uznach station on the other side.

The masterplan aims to transform Uznach railway station area from a mono functional zone into a lively, mixed and central district with a popular and new image and high-quality public spaces, while simultaneously creating a new intermodal transportation hub.

By combining a comprehensive urban design concept with a careful coordination of urban design and traffic, we managed to establish new focal points in the urban structure, provide generous public spaces and exploit the potential of pedestrians in dense urban areas.
