BE’ER SHEVA’S CENTRAL TRAIN STATION
Total area: 7,480 m², Client: Israel Railways, Established: 1999, Status: In use
The structure, located at the center of the city in proximity to the city’s central bus station, embodies the aspiration to create a public structure of a local character and identity with a tight urban affiliation. This aspiration led to the creation of an entrance to a well surrounded by trees, its walls impermeable and the light comes from the well opening, above, creating a play of light and shadow. The passage to the platforms is through a Turkish bridge, the first memory of the city and the train.
