Roma Tiburtina high speed train station is a crucial transport interchange hub that connects Rome and Lazio to the rest of Italy, visited by 50+ mln users per year. It is constituted by two mail halls connected by a huge crystal arcade that stretches over the highest floor, where the tracks are, plus a comfortable underground piazza. Not just a busy traffic hub, but an actual “urban boulevard” that finally connects two districts that, before Tiburtina, had been historically separated by the railway.
Due to its strategic position at the heart of a mostly residential district, Roma Tiburtina is a retail landmark for both travelers and locals of the surrounding areas, where the offer is limited.
At the end of 2017, the opening of BNP Paribas’ new headquarters – attracting over 3,000 people every day – in the station’s proximity gave further boost to the area’s urban, economic and commercial development.
Roma Tiburtina’s railway complex was born in the 1940s to replace the station of Portonaccio. The original design by architect Angiolo Mazzoni featured a system of buildings connected by porches. With the advent of high-speed trains in 2009, Tiburtina was chosen as Roma’s high-speed railway traffic hub, due to its position along Italy’s north-South axis and its easy access to Termini.
Opened in 2011, the new Tiburtina complex (designed by Paolo Desideri’s Studio ABDR) appears as one of the most ambitious urban projects ever of our country. The renovation interventions included the construction of a stunning crystal arcade: a large, spectacular 350-meter long and 60-meter wide pedestrian boulevard suspended over the railway area and resting on the two access halls. A visually impressive system of 8 suspended volumes that host the station’s retail & service offer and waiting lounges.
