San Sebastian Metro Donostialdea

San Sebastian Metro Donostialdea

The design is based on a continuous movement from under ground level to over ground, and visa versa.
The design element goes from being a ceiling structure under ground to create a roof structure over the stairs and up over ground. The structure describes the transition between the two states and connects the city life with the metro world.

The signage and wayfinding system are an integrated and communicative part of the Metro stations. We performed a valuation of signage levels at varied distances, in addition to electronic and interactive LED displays with color coded hierarchy for train times and timetables. Directional icons, integrated into the structure itself - as well as site markers - indicate station location from a distance. These, along with visual accessibility, are the design criteria for highly legible and comprehensible urban metro station environments.
