#111 / Where are you ? Quel est ce lieu ?


Despite its cross shape, this place is not design church. It is an unattended Railway Station, in Holland. This station is part of a global project called Prettig Wachten (waiting comfortably) handled by ProRail, who handles railway stations management. According to needs, the structure can integrate a human presence (or not), a coffee or shop facility (or not) … But it surely provides a reassuring, comfortable waiting place for travellers. A perfect blend of functionality, modularity and aesthetics.

Malgré une forme en croix, ce lieu n’est pas une église. Il s’agit d’une station de chemin de fer en Hollande. Cette station fait partie d’un projet global appelé Prettig Wachten (attendre confortablement) mené par ProRail, en charge de la gestion des stations de chemin de fer. Selon les besoins, la structure peut intégrer une présence humaine (ou pas), un café ou un magasin (ou pas) … Il fournit en tous cas un endroit rassurant, à l’abri des intempéries, confortable aux voyageurs en attente. Un mélange parfait de fonctionnalité, de modularité et d’esthétique.
