Gare do Oriente Station
As foreseen before the tender, the station created a physical barrier between the city and the river. This was a barrier we did not want as we wanted to strengthen this connection and, at the same time, use the present dynamism as a catalyst for the creation of a new and higher quality of life in Lisbon.
The project is a challenge at various levels - in terms of town planning and architecturally - as it includes two new avenues created in order to connect the station to the city and also, an adjacent square which intends to accentuate and make the most of the longitudinal axis of the building.
This multi-modal platform centralizes transport structures for the different transport systems which will service the whole intervention zone and much more. There are five main nuclei, each corresponding to the various systems, specifically the train station (with it's public areas) the metro station the underground car park and the underground gallery.
