Large openings in the levels of the station concourse ensure that the daylight is distributed right down to the lowest platform level. The current daylight study forms the foundation of the artificial light planning. Only on this basis is intelligent, qualitative light planning possible. The aim is to reflect the various degrees of daylight in the artificial lighting so as to accommodate travellers? natural perception of light. The platform lighting consists of punctiform lighting systems, the effect of which intensifies greatly towards the edge of the platform. The train profile was just as much part of the lighting concept as the waiting zone in the central part of the platform - the latter is equipped with far lower intensities created by floodlighting the vaulted ceiling shells. The punctiform lighting systems for illuminating the ceilings are equipped with halogen metal vapour lamps.
