Aim of the project is not to identify a centre or make the station recognisable, but to signal the presence of a public space. The garden-square model, as required by the metrobus identity guidelines, is followed and taken to different levels of interpretation: the street level and the station level. The design proposes planting trees that, trimmed with a topiary technique, reduce the existing compression at the exit of the station and make a garden, a parterre, visible from the road above.
