The station was built about 100 years ago as a luxurious private train station for one of the last emperors ? Wilhelm II.

The modernized object is situated at Dworcowa Street in Poznań. It borders the street on the eastern side, with railways to the west. The object consists of two parts: a 100 square meter building and a roofed platform. The platform holds the annual festivities commemorating the Greater Poland Uprising, combined with staging the coming of Ignacy Paderewski. Besides, the station, due to its poor technical condition, served no purpose.

Main project assumptions:

The station's building is adjusted for PKP passengers' service. Its functional programme is changed. The hall room includes a customer service point with two traditional ticket sale posts and modern electronic sale options: 2 ticket machines and an information machine. The room of 22,3 sq.m., situated to the left of the entrance, was altered into a lounge, connected with the customer service area. The lounge includes 2 sq.m. of commercial space ? 2 vending machines and a connection with the staff social backstage. There are sanitary utilities to the right of the entrance.

The hall room, both on the side of Dworcowa Street and on the side of the platform entrance, due to its connecting character is left to serve communication purposes, with an alternative informative function.

The platform itself has been restored, equipped with the necessary small architecture elements, like benches, trash bins, an information board with a clock. According to the primary historical assumption, the platform roof has been glazed, and an outdoor lounge has been designed within the shelter.
