Stopping pavilions are one of the varieties of small architectural forms (MAF) for the improvement of urban infrastructure. First of all, the stopping pavilions were designed to protect the waiting public transport from rain, snow and wind. In addition, identically designed LFAs add aesthetics to cityscapes.
Very soon, business owners realized that this type of LFA is perfect for advertising: from small flyers to large banners. Moreover, some of the pavilions with a larger area over time began to be converted into retail premises, which are very popular for rent among retail enterprises due to the constant influx of people.
Stopping pavilions are classified according to their capacity and layout. For the capacity there are: small (up to 10 people), medium (up to 20 people) and large (20 or more people). They are distinguished by planning:
Open (with a roof, but without walls);
Semi-closed (with walls, but without completely enclosed spaces);
Closed (with a cash register or a trade kiosk converted from it);
Closed (completely enclosed space, inside which there may be several shops united by a common hall).
The last two varieties are especially in demand for commercial lease (for the sale of goods and services). This type of MAF is reliable in operation due to modern building materials involved in their installation (reinforced concrete blocks, steel structures, aluminum elements, corrugated board, etc.). Thus, the trading floors will not need frequent renovations. Their design can differ in both unusual architectural solutions and classic options.
