|function||bridge, car park|
Reorganization of the Barneveld - Noord railway station area began with construction of a ‘transferium’, an interchange for private and public transport. It consists of a parking garage and a pedestrian walkway across the Amersfoort - Apeldoorn railway line (known as the Valley Line). The pedestrian overpass ends at ‘platform plaza’. The car park and the pedestrian walkway are merged into a single volume presenting a united architectural image. The volume floats free of the ground, turns to the highest point and passes over the rails with an elegant deflection. The spatial relation between the walkway and the car park is accentuated by partly continuing the double-floor height of the walkway into the garage. The lift and the staircase are consequently like a breath of fresh air in comparison to the minimal dimensions of conventional parking garages. The walkway is a steel truss bridge with a free span of 35 metres (text from website architects).
