Smart cycle parking at La Villa station
Neko was commissioned by the Ministry for the Environment in Mexico City to develop a series of infrastructure projects designed to connect bicycle and public transport systems (in this case the metro). In this 80-space cycle hub, we designed and constructed a semi-permanent building with automated controlled access and CCTV. This is the first project in a public mobility plan to connect strategic points of the city, and our modular design can be adapted to modify the bike storage available at each site, according to requirements.
The project features Neko’s space-saving double-decker bike racks. The pneumatic assistance and user-friendly angle of this award-winning product make storing bikes on the upper tier effortless. For this project we were selected as one of Obras magazine’s ‘10 Studios-Smart Cities 2018’ in their prestigious annual awards.
