Mixed-use Train Depot




This feasibility study implements a Metro train garaging and light maintenance station with mixed use commercial, residential, and office space built around and over the garage. The study proposes a semi-private "high village" that is accessible at all major intersections and from a large southern ramp that mirrors the upward slope of the underground train tracks. The west side of the project borders a large highway where a acoustic double facade protects the entire length of the project. A large band of office program follows this border and provided further sound insulation.  The public plaza proposed at the south end of the site serves a complex intermodal node connecting between bus routes, a metro line, 2 regional light rail lines, and a tramway terminus. Daily work areas in the mainenance garage are well lit with skylights that help define the forms of the above structures.

Work was completed at SYSTRA in Paris.
