Pedram KI - Studio & Niki Shayesteh: As we embark on a journey towards a greener future, envisioning the train travel of the future becomes a paramount task. The train of the future isn't just a mode of transportation; it's an experience, a gateway to sustainable tourism, and a symbol of innovation. In our quest to redefine train travel, we have envisioned an attractive and flexible interior that prioritizes comfort, convenience, and sustainability.

Picture stepping into a double-decker train adorned with beautiful lighting and rustic photos, evoking a sense of tranquility and nostalgia. As you explore the interior, you're greeted with a space designed to cater to every traveler's needs. From variable seating arrangements to a group travel area complete with a counter or bar and TV, the train offers ample opportunities to socialize, work, or simply unwind.

One of the key features of the train of the future is its emphasis on maximizing space. We understand the importance of providing more space, especially in a world where lots of passengers seek comfort and relaxation during their journeys. Hence, we have curated a design that prioritizes spaciousness, ensuring that passengers can sit together, relax comfortably, and make the most of their travel time.

For cyclists, the train of the future offers a convenient solution - a designated area equipped with charging stations for e-bikes and phones. Families traveling with children will find a haven in the children's paradise, complete with a lounge area, snack area, and even a massage area featuring massage chairs. Meanwhile, business travelers can make use of the work area with a view outside, allowing them to stay productive while enjoying the scenic landscapes.

Privacy is also a priority onboard the train of the future. Passengers can opt for lockable cabins for added security, while those seeking relaxation can retreat to the private ferry for some peace and quiet. Additionally, all carriages are built barrier-free, ensuring accessibility for passengers with disabilities. Showers and changing rooms are available after training sessions in the sports area, catering to health-conscious travelers.

But the train of the future isn't just about comfort and convenience; it's about sustainability. From the use of renewable energy sources like solar panels and air-to-water heat pumps to the utilization of rainwater for toilets and showers, every aspect of the train is designed with environmental conservation in mind. The train serves as a testament to sustainable building practices, embracing circular building materials and setting the stage for a green future in transportation.

As you wonder why we came up with this idea, remember that the train of the future isn't just a mode of transportation; it's a vision of what's possible when innovation meets sustainability. It's about building a future where train travel isn't just about getting from point A to point B, but about enjoying the journey in peace and harmony with the planet. Welcome aboard the train of tomorrow, where every ride is a step towards a brighter, greener future.
