Goya Station, Zaragoza, Spain

CEDIC

This new commuter train station meets three conditions that make it a landmark for the citizens of Zaragoza: its architectural design, its central location and its functionality, connecting to other urban transport systems.

The building

The construction of the new terminal represents a new advance in the growth experienced by the city of Zaragoza during the last few years, linked to the development of the railway infrastructure.

The building is divided into two floors. The first floor, located at the level of Goya Avenue, houses the lobby that includes the ticket office, public toilets, shops and access controls to the tracks. The ground floor contains a central platform for the trains. The station design is based on modernity, accessibility and sustainability criteria, creating open glazed spaces to take advantage of sunlight.

The roof

The most characteristic element of the architectural design is the roof of laminated timber and copper with an area of 1,006m² and developed as a single element. It is designed as an undulating sheet based on the height and geometry of the laminated timber structure beams on which it rests, reaching a maximum of 10 meters.

The roof is covered with green pre-patinated copper sheet, using the standing seam system in combination with the TIG (tungsten inert gas) welding process to ensure transverse joints sealing. The soffit of the roof is covered with pre-patinated copper shingles.
