“NL architects ” has developed a temporary structure in the “Barnevels noord bus station” in Netherlands, it is a structure made of shipping containers designed to make the waiting time enjoyable. This construction was made using the idea of the “pretting wachten ” , a campaign that aims to improve the waiting time at the stations for the most stressed travelers.

The temporary project has been built with shipping containers, which result in an ambiguous and powerful facade. 3 horizontal volumes are suspended together forming a roof . One of the areas is used for temporary programs specific to the place, another is used for storage, and the third is a waiting room for the travellers. The fourth container is ubicated vertically, the result is a tower with a clock and a wind vane that follows the traditional Dutch canons. This project will be implemented in 20 other bus stations in all the country.
