The proposal for the future Metropolitan Train Station of Suzano, designed by JBMC Arquitetura e Urbanismo, will be developed in surface, in a place already occupied by the existing station, which will be deactivated after the new station starts operating. This project includes the main building of the station, which houses platforms and mezzanine, their accesses on both sides of the railways, bike rack, technical and operating room building, and water reservoirs. More images and architects’ description after the break.

The Suzano station belongs to Line 11 of the Companhia Paulista de Trens Metropolitanos (CPTM), and the current station will be replaced by a new set of buildings due to the need to adapt to the new demands of passengers and also the accessibility criteria. The main building structure was designed with concrete pillar track frame and beams and metal roof, with steel deck type slab. To close this volume, it was proposed installing metal louvers, providing ventilation, protection and light transparency. Two central platforms are located under the mezzanine to serve 4 railway lines.

The technical and operation room building will be annexed to the main station body, in the south façade. It will be connected to the station mezzanine by a restricted access catwalk. This is a 3-story building with conventional structure of concrete columns, beams and slabs and concrete block closure.
