EDICLE PLAÇA ESPANYA

The expansion of the regional train line in Sabadell, modified significantly the Plaça Espanya, located on the north of the city. In the basement of this public space is located a new FGC station which connects to the existing Regional line through a common lobby, also newly built. These underground facilities determine significant differences in level between the square and the streets surrounding. We tried to solve all the new slopes without concrete retaining walls. So we take advantage of this chance to obtain a big green space to plant trees in the middle of city. A series of terraces overview the city and classify the different areas of the new square.
