The design for the Capodichino Station represents a significant opportunity to contribute to the regeneration of the airport itself. The new scheme positions the underground station at the heart of the airport. This will help reduce the walking distance between the train platforms and the entrances to the departure and arrival terminals. The wide roof section over the new pedestrian piazza helps to define routes into and out of the station. Colour-coded escalators help to orientate and channel passenger flows through the station. The roof which covers this well allows natural light to penetrate deep into the internal space of the station, as well as allowing natural ventilation to circulate throughout the building. It also provides protection from sunlight and rain for the piazza, creating a public space which offers a safe, protected environment for those passengers travelling between the station and the airport.
