Bekkestua is a central public transport node in the suburban municipality of Bærum outside Oslo, connecting bus, tramway and metro routes. The former village has been developed in recent years with housing and new commerce, and is now a small town. The station is centrally located, and a main task was to achieve maximum connectivity from surrounding roads and pedestrian infrastructure.
From the central square, stairs and a ramp lead down to the platform, while a ramp and elevator also connect up to the bus- and taxi stops. Another ramp and stair further east connects to the pedestrian- and cycle lanes.
The roof above the platform follows these movements of people along stairs and ramps. The structure is based on a simple geometry with laminated timber beams laid on a central steel structure. Thin Lexan sheets give weather protection. The ramps and stairs are in in-situ concrete, supported by a V-shaped column.
