Prilly-Malley train station
Luscher Architectes SA, built between 2008 and 2012
The exterior of this train station almost feels like a minimalist shell around the trains offering weather protection. The interior uses the official SBB colours and its large windows offer both views of the city and beautiful light and shadow plays inside the station.
“Trait d‘union“, the new underpass linking Renens and Prilly. Opened in time for the Youth Olympics in 2020, it creates an easy access to the Prilly-Malley train station and La Vaudoise aréna. Pedestrians have access through a spiral staircase while cyclists use a spiral ramp !
