Rosenheim's new transfer hub
The opening of the Regional Bus Station in Rosenheim on 6 July provides a new transfer hub between regional public transport and urban commuter buses. The two imposing single-pitch roofs are clearly visible from across this busy transport area, and together with the newly planted trees they help to better define the space. The design was developed by landscape architects terra.nova and architects Wich architekten. Bartenbach lighting design was responsible for the planning of the innovative lighting and photovoltaic system.
Photovoltaic panels are integrated into the perforated surface of the single-pitch roofs. The more than 1200 square metres of solar panels not only provide a self-sufficient, sustainable and cost-effective power supply, but also provide shade during the day. At night, the transparent shells are backlit with energy-efficient LED technology, creating a perceptible volume of light. Downlights are integrated into the edges of the roofs, which precisely illuminate the bus platforms without causing any glare. If desired, the colour of the pitch roofs can also be changed due to the use of RGB LEDs
