Loja High Speed Train Station

Integration, sustainability, mimesis and significance.

This project, developed by Opta Architects, in collaboration with Ingennya for ADIF, is heavily influenced by the climatic requirements, topography and landscape of its surroundings. Located in an area of extreme climate, mid-slope in a steep area, the railway lines are in an upper level than passenger’s area. Through a cover to be folded in on itself and prioritizing the flow of passengers and users, we get a representative space, with interior-exterior leakage, which is adapted to climate changes and also generates a representative milestone that puts the station on the horizon.
