A ropeway station is first of all a landmark in the wide open spaces of the mountains. The origin and the destination of a ride. So it is natural to see it as a piece of architecture braving the elements. but a lift station is above all a set of engines, rope pulleys and sheaves.
A set of machinery which is there to be run, ventilated and maintained like any other drivesystem, and in addition it is a part of the world of products encompassing the leisure skier. So the station design of the D-Line is the conclusive answer: a techy cabinet aligned to the track cable, capped by a modern face.
