The Zentraler Omnibusbahnhof (ZOB) in Herne got a new roof.
A transparent glass structure of a length of 142m with a shape of two merged ellipses at 6m rises above the stops from two parallel rows of supports.
The roof’s neck makes for the respectful distance to the listed train station and also marks the train station’s access from the square.
Another roof connects the stops with the station.
The roof’s support structure is steel trussed; its top and bottom flanges are slightly vaulted, which makes for the roof’s lentil-like cross section.
Transparent safety glass covers the roof structure’s upper side, a stainless-steel-wire braid the lower side.
The pavilion over the entrance to the tube station was renovated throughout and is also covered by the new roof.
The Heiderich Hummert Klein architectural firm also designed information columns and glassed-in, wind-protected waiting areas.
