The station is located in the heart of the business district of Brescia, the centre of the city’s economy. Crew Cremonesi Workshop designed it not only from a technical, but also architectural and aesthetic point of view, wanting to overturn the cliché that stations are lifeless and merely functional spaces.
“The guidelines of the planning process for the Brescia metro,” said Engineer Lamberto Cremonesi, CEO of Cremonesi Workshop “Was to put the user at the centre of a project that is not the usual succession of floors, levels, stairs and steps, but a single space.” The result is a modern and functional structure that is well recognizable for its morphology and colours, as well as for the painstaking research in the surfaces that were used.
Thickened porcelain tiles add value to the Brescia Metro stations. Colours, sizes and materials at the designer’s service Sixteen thousand meters of 14mm thickened porcelain tiles specially produced by Cotto d’Este have satisfied the expectations of designers from a chromatic point of view, with a special colour taken from the pantone colour system, and an equally unique 75,5x175,7 cm format.
