Lahti Travel Center is located in the transport hub of the city next to the historical railway station. With the new travel center, the city is improving wellbeing of the residents by building new traffic infrastucture, but also improving image of the city.

The center consists of a 60-meter long canopy for the bus terminal, elevators, local bus stops, landscape elements and a 80-meter long tunnel space. The aim of the design was to create functional and high quality spaces for the city.

The architectural concept is timeless and strong. The structures are built with perforated copper, structural glass and integrated lighting systems to create a new modern identity for Lahti transport hub.
