Station Vigna Clara
A bow window, a visual door from where it is possible to observe the arrival of people and trains.
The first project for the Vigna Clara station was carried out on the occasion of the 1990 World Cup, but the stop never went into operation. The restyling project entrusted in 2016 provides for the complete recovery of the old building. The overall restyling was completed in 2021.
The project for the new Vigna Clara station wants to inaugurate a new era. It wants to be a forerunner of a time where architecture becomes aware of the leading role it plays. An architecture capable of generating new functions within the same function for which it was born.

The restyling project of the Vigna Clara station in Rome is the winner of prestigious prizes and awards for design excellence. Among which it won the ICONIC Award – German Design Council for Innovative Architecture (First Award) and the Global Future Design Award GFD – Gold Winner 2022.
A single opening, a bow window, which is identified as a visual door from where it is possible to observe the overall structure of the new station project and the arrival of the trains.
System of shelters
This connection is implemented through the construction of an architectural backdrop made up of a tight system of canopies. Open to sighting by the user and observer, towards the railway platform. Architectural totems are formal signals for the user and act as a visual reference. They are separators and space measurement modules, at the same time they perform the function of shelter and protection from atmospheric agents, allowing the traveler to reach the trains in safety.
