Logroño High-speed Train Station
Location: Logroño, Spain
Architecture: Abalos+Sentkiewicz Arquitectos
As part of an ongoing redevelopment of the area of Logroño in Northern Spain, the stations purpose - and the redevelopment programme at large - was to improve connections between the North and South of the city. With this in mind, the architects were determined that the train station should not interrupt or impose itself on the urban topography.
Designed by Abalos+Sentkiewicz Arquitectos, the Logroño High-Speed train station has a faceted aluminium room, which extends over subterranean platforms. With most of the station being underground, natural light is allowed into the space through several partially-glazed turrets, which are visible - but not imposingly so - from the surrounding parkland.
