The project of Andria Sud Station, starting from a tender project that can not be modified, works on the definition of the materials in order to determine the recognizability of the building in the urban environment. Not being able to change the volumes, the building works on the coating's inclination to obtain an optical distortion of the building.

The inclination of the access shelter allows the positioning of photovoltaic cells and the water collection. The project provides, from the point of view of sustainability, the collection and reuse of rainwater and the shading and ventilation systems to reduce the heat in the summer period.
