Platform Design for Danmark's first Lightrail

Providing a pleasurable travel experience 

Safe, Nordic and User-friendly

Safety, recognisability and a Nordic design expression were the main goals for Danmark's first lightrail, Aarhus Letbane
Providing a safe and transparent platform environment with a high drgree of visibility was the main focus when designing the platforms.
At the same time, we put a great effort in achieving a positive impact for the city of Aarhus and its inhabitants.

For keeping light pollution as low as possible, low and local light-setting were developed. Colours and materials for shelter and pavings cohere with the urban surroundings and support the image of Aarhus.

" In reality, good design is, what you don't see, because it doesn't shout in your face, but is blending in in a subtle way, and is super functional. And that is a special ability, creating design that manages to provide good everyday experiences. The overall impression is, what matters to us, and you can see, that Holscher Design has put a lot of thought in the design expression. There is a red line all the way through the project."
Claus Rehfeldt, CEO, Aarhus Letbane
