Umea train station was designed by architect Lennart Sjögren (White Arkitekter) and opened in August, 2010. The building is located in the main tourist center of the city. It is a harmonious combination of wood and glass with the point fixed support structure that creates a unique façade look.
The construction of a station is made in a minimalistic way, although large format glasses and complicated triple glazed units were used for façade glazing. The outer pane of insulated glass unit was laminated glass with a multifunctional solar control coating and fixed by a spider system through the inner laminated glass.
