More Info


The topology of the Breda CS has the image of the whole station complex under one single roof. The architectural design meets the needs for a public transport where large open space can be found in most area. However, the bus terminal on the north side at level 1 has many columns and low ceiling height. This master’s thesis aims to reduce the rows of columns on the bus terminal and creative more open space for the public in a structural way. The north side of Breda CS has the dimension of 180m long, 27.5m wide and 23m high.
