The fundamental design philosophy has been to establish smoothly operating Metro stations that give passengers ideal access conditions from street level to platforms.
As the Metro shall have a long service life, the design of the Metro shall blend in with and enhance its urban surroundings – both in the existing city and the new Ørestad. To achieve this delicate balance, the stations – like the other parts of the Metro – are kept in classic, functional Scandinavian design.
The nine underground stations are visible at ground level due to elevator towers and glass pyramids. The function of the pyramids is to guide daylight all the way down to the platform below. This creates a pleasant natural light and saves energy.
Above ground stations
Eleven kilometres of the line are on embankments or elevated sections. The thirteen over ground stations consist of glass and steel structures in a light design and resemble the tunnel stations in functionality and design.
