Harnessing nature for durability and aesthetics
First impressions matter, particularly when you’re the gateway to a city. In redesigning the century old CasaPort station for modern travellers, AREP and G3A envisaged a light, open space that stretches out beneath a soaring columned roof. The timber deck structure needed to resist extreme temperatures and provide shelter from occasional North Atlantic storms. Quality and visual appeal were also of utmost importance as the roof is visible to guests at nearby luxury hotels.
