The main goal of this competition was to create a transport hub that, despite being located above the rail tracks, would be easily accessible and passenger friendly. Therefore a very careful consideration has been given to the detailing, materials and ergonomic solutions. All new functions, such as restaurants, newsstands, ticket offices, waiting areas and commercial spaces, were relocated into two newly designed structures which, bound together by a passageway, create a welcoming, urban ‘entrance gate’ to the city of Częstochowa.
The newly designed facade with its characteristic ‘arcade’ invites and guides the passengers inside the building. Its typology refers to the building tradition of Warsaw-Vienna Railway Stations built in the 19th Century.
