Sustainable ferry terminal

It functions both as a new urban park for people to engage socially and bring life to a complete new urban area in Stockholm and infrastructure securing a safe and destination for more than 4 million passengers a year.
The passenger part of the terminal is raised to be at level with the urban zone, so it is easy for both pedestrians and traffic to access.
