The project focuses on designing new bow-windows that focus on the natural area of Cesano (area outside of Roma) and provides per user waiting areas with a complete view of the landmark and skyline.
These architectonic-composite solutions eager to highlight a Part of the entire FL3 network, with the aim of making the spaces of the project easily recognizable for the user.
Material is the industrial aluminum covering that is important in the contemporary new image of the Italian railway station and defends its image trough time.
The user must feel welcomed and guided through the various functions within the project distribution and feel in a city scale at ease.
