Two plans for Lublin station unveiled
The first of the two concepts prepared by D+M Architects
POLAND D+M Architects has submitted a preliminary concept for a new bus station to Lublin city council. Public consultations for the Integrated Transport Centre (ZCK) project were concluded on December 6th.

The concept includes two variants: “Both involve a building that will have a light and airy structure. Our idea was to create a transparent, sculpted form. We have designed a building that comprises a larger, external section that encloses another smaller one, so that it resembles a box within a box, which together with its aesthetic aspects will greatly reduce the heating costs,” explained Magda Federowicz-Boule of the design team of D+M Architects.

The first concept is to build a two-storey bus station building supported by 15 pillars with a cantilever design and a vine motif. This design is dominated by greenery on the façade as well as on the useable area of the roof (a roof garden). A total of 85 covered bus stands would be created as well as 185 underground parking spaces and a taxi rank for six cars. Commuters would be greeted by a concrete wall featuring a drawing of the map of Lublin. The building will include a tourist information point and a promotional office for the town and Lublin region. This version would involve not completely closing off the traffic on the nearby pl. Dworcowy, but instead limiting it to public transport and privileged vehicles.

The second concept envisages a more modest building (without access to the roof), which would be located slightly closer to the railway station. The bus station would also be a structure consisting of two boxes. The outer cover would be a spatial lattice supported by four pillars with branched steel heads. The internal section would be a glass cube comprising two separate areas: a passenger service zone and an office zone. The design includes fewer bus stands (74), a car park for 178 vehicles and a taxi rank for eight vehicles. An ornamental wall would also be built, featuring the folk art paper cuttings characteristic for the region embossed in concrete. Pl. Dworcowy would be turned into a pedestrianised open areas.

By the end of this year the architects will receive precise instructions for the ultimate form of the project from the city authorities. By the end of September 2018 a building permit application should have been drawn up and a detailed design should be prepared by the end of February 2019. The project has been scheduled for completion by the end of 2022.

D+M Architects is a sister company of the Tremend architectural studio.
