Rälssitilanportti is located at the new Niittykumpu metro station in Espoo. An underpass leads to the metro station and underground bike park. There is a direct underground connection to the shopping center Niitty and the metro
The design of the light traffic underpass in the Niittykumpu metro station in Espoo was designed to liven up the environment and delight users. The lighting design takes into account the unique shape, color and material of the underpass.
Inspired by the meadow theme, it was transformed into a butterfly wing by the architect (Sarc Architects). Its shape, material and saturated color also placed light in the important role. Animal wall mural by artist Lotta Mattila takes over the underpass tunnel, spreading on its walls and outside.
During the day, natural light streams between the canopies, creating an intimate atmosphere. In the darktime, light highlights the details, shapes and echances color dynamics of the underpass.
