Architectural design competition for station canopies
Keen to preserve the typical "chalet station" appearance, TPF held an architectural design competition to find a suitable canopy for Montbovon and Vuadens stations. The winning design by RBCH Architectes Sàrl is light and subtle, bringing a touch of modernity perfectly in keeping with the traditional architecture of these "chalet stations".
