Text description provided by the architects. Implantation.

When the road turns in crossing, the mantle of crags gives way to a profile of stone carved by man and history. A large concrete tubes silo interrupts him to showing the importance of the livestock factor in these difficult farmlands. In this border area between countryside and city, where the urban layout has diluted to individuality, an urban plan seeks integration through a cattle track and a large green area where the station of buses of Trujillo is located.

In this field of crags as exposed to the weather sits this architecture linked to the substrate, raised the least to protect themselves from outside, as a large "stone" rises to place ourselves under her.

Once inside the site are established two distinct dimensions: one, the platform for transit vehicles and other associated with movements of the traveller. Accesses are distinguished equally, so buses entering and leaving through the natural elevation of the land, without ramps, to interfere as little as possible in their movements. While the pedestrian access is available at the top, near the city. A soft game levels introduces the cobblestone Street in the solar to stop under the "great stone", and already covered, access to the station.

Ground Floor Plan


Under the "stone", sloping structure, comes off of the substrate, folds and increases its volume transforming from car park of bus maintenance area staff to cover docks and platforms. In the horizontal outer space is conceived as the true lobby both input and output for pedestrian traffic. The drudgery of the "stone" is perforated by light: abroad will be a few skylights that guide us towards the entrance, stretching in the interior of the building and will be inside, patios, boxes of glass under the roof slab, permeable to the platforms, a single horizontal and open space in interior/exterior visual continuity.

The provision of these courtyards, materialized towards internal travel as translucent lockers, subdivided space in different lounges according to the different types of travel: local or long‐distance. The cafeteria, as another waiting room, opens directly to the platforms and culminating the indoor waiting area, gives way to a tree‐lined courtyard, that oriented to South and larger than the previous, it is linked to the outside waiting area creating a sunny place of stay.

The concrete unifies floors, walls and ceilings, a monolithic element and defines the spaces of Circulations interrupted only by the path of facilities and confined space liner. Glasses physically separate spaces and closed courtyards, creating an effect of transparency and brightness of the rock.
