A common place in Darfo Boario Terme

ARW Associates (Botticini+Facchinelli ARW) as Architects

The large space has been tripartite to create a central square in front of the train station with continuous benches that define the measure of an informal 'footprint'. 

A place is generated where plants are grafted onto the large benches that measure the pedestrian space paved in large slabs of Diorite stone from Adamello, the great mountain that towers above the valley. The benches have a continuous light at the base that mark the space at night. A fountain near the station recalls the arrival in a city of water.

The spaces on the sides are rationalised to the south as a bus station that remains and a car park-market space to the north.
