CAPEXUS never stops and always runs on time. For proof, have a look at the newly opened Správa železnic information centre at Prague's main railway station, which our team implemented based on a design by the monom architectural studio. Passengers can visit the centre at the bottom of the new lobby every day, including weekends. But if you are not planning a train trip, we will be happy to introduce you to the information centre right now.

Convenient access to information

An information centre does not have to be a cramped room filled with stands holding colourful leaflets. On the contrary, the key is convenient access to information, exemplary clarity, modern technologies, and a design that draws passengers in. The newly built Správa železnic information centre undoubtedly meets all these criteria.

Identity inspiration

The railway inspiration is evident from the overall look of the interior and the elaborate details reflecting elements from the visual identity of the Správa železnic information centre. During the implementation, which took place in the course of normal operation of the station, we were not derailed even by the more complex installation of some elements. These include, for example, a railway wheel, model trains printed on a 3D printer or gabion walls with aggregates imitating the appearance of a railway embankment.

Follow the traffic lights

Lights and light surfaces play a crucial role in the centre. LED strips are placed on the ceiling, reminiscent of a railway crossing. Not to be missed are the large touchscreens, through which visitors can obtain information not only about departures, but also about assistance services provided on site. The dominant feature of the centre is a large projection wall.

"The large-format display enables the presentation of panoramic images, map materials and videos of Správa železnic. In addition, controlling all the technology, and therefore also the projection wall, is simple and intuitive. It is done via a touch panel, where scenarios for operating the entire centre are prepared. To start it the operator only needs to press a single button.

A station for passengers and staff

The information centre considers the needs not only of passengers, but also of staff. It is ready to provide visitors with additional information and answers to questions, but also assistance services. The information desk for the staff and much of the furniture were made to measure by skilled carpenters. Employees also have backroom facilities with computer equipment as well as a cloakroom and a small kitchen with a dishwasher.
