A new generation of "drive-in" station
- Client: SNCF Gares & Connexions
- Project management: SNCF - Agence Duthilleul - AREP / E. Tricaud, F. Bonnefille
- Structure: MaP3
- Delivery: 2017
The most noticeable and distinctive feature of the station is the above-ground silo car park on its south side which dovetails with the passenger building.
Both the location and design of the building create a new green public space which ensures spatial continuity with the urban surroundings. The concourse of the passenger building houses services and retail outlets, all laid out around a central space. A large glazed facade allows for natural daylight to flood in. The site's core circulation is hosted at the junction point between the car park and the passenger building and provides access to all levels. The project is part of a broader reflection aiming to regenerate the economic development of both the Belcier district and the Armagnac urban block.
