Two base-beacons, situated on the road, at the entrance and at the exit of the taxi parking places, complete the whole waiting station set. They offer a protection to the taxi drivers against automobiles in circulation.For us, this is a vital design feature, that concerns the users safety.

We thus propose the concept MINI STATION 0904, a friendly and secure nest adapted to the needs of the taxi drivers in wait and to their clientele. It consists of a modular and mobile geometrical structure of rectangular plan including a rounded overhang roof, supported by two pillars. The set, easily recognizable, protects the taxi area (road) and the waiting area (road-sidewalk).

Name of the project: MINI ROAD STATION 0904 - The advantages of spreading our structure towards the road are multiple: in winter, it avoids the snow clearing of taxis. In summer as in winter, the waiting station is then perfectly visible and offers a protection to the driver during the ingress egress activity. Indeed, an articulated and removable reflective beacon is fixed to a ballasted, but mobile, shock absorption base. This base is covered with contrasting chevrons.

The station roof covers its base, temporarily fixed to the road, and a little more than half of the width of a standard sidewalk. This allows the circulation of the pedestrians and the snow removal between buildings and waiting stations, while offering a covered space with a seating for three individuals, a trash can and a futuristic multifunctional column.
