Krumbach is a unique town. Not only do they have 30,000 tourists a year, but in recent years several architecturally important buildings have been built, as well as a new central bus station.

They also have hourly bus service, something unexpected in rural areas. So the idea of bus shelters ties in very nicely with the existing infrastructure, and extends it.

This one is by Rintala Eggertsson Architects from Norway. It's overlooking a tennis court so they created the combination bus stop and spectator stand for the tennis courts. It is timber built and shingle-clad.
