Movicentro Di Cossato, Italy

3.0 Architettura

The station is designed as a unique space that contains within itself the functions covered atrium, waiting room, bar, ticket office, selling newspapers and cigarettes, covered access to the track connection to the existing shelter.

The choice of architectural morphology and materials weighed on the project, because we tried to put a recognizable element in an urban landscape confused. Like a car parked waiting for passengers, the station is projected joining the railroad tracks with the track Viale Paietta, indicating its presence across the existing routes.

The simplicity of form-cue built to a height of 5.50 m with a double pitch roof, helps to avoid undue intervention included in a existing building, with a clear reference to accessory structures typical of the rail network, but magazines using existing materials to convey the sense of the world's technological upgrading of public transport-which are always more cars, light, transparent structures which are the main support.

Pursuing the appeal to the world of the railway, as well as in the forms also to materials, has opted for technological choices: portals of vertical steel beams connected HEA 200 of the same color profile RAL7010, buffered, sides south, east and west, with windows in aluminum color RAL5014, with walls plastered on the north side, we opted for a modular structure on which to apply a skin transparent or opaque depending on exposure and function.

Deliberately sought and emphasized the connection between the square optical Paietta Avenue to the tracks and is obtained through the use of glass curtain walls at the ends of the building, visually and functionally re-connecting the city with the area railway system. The head toward Paietta Avenue, will host the typical communication of public places, such as signs and the clock, the legacy of historic train stations.
