The urban railway station Wilhelm-Leuschner Platz has been designed as a space of exquisite simplicity and enthralling clarity. The walls and ceiling are homogenously fashioned from one material: glass bricks. The consistent illumination of the gap between glass bricks and concrete shell enabled a maintenance friendly installation without any perturbances through service hatches or similar.

The result is a hall below grade with a light infused spatial impression that conveys capaciousness and openness instead of the wide-spread claustrophobia.
