Interplan teamed in JV with Eisenman Architects and Guido Zuliani for the design of the new Pompei railway station, commissioned by Campania Regional Government. This strategic infrastructure is part of a broader project aimed at burying underground the current railway line and eliminating the historic separation of the northern and southern portions of the urban center. The station itself is conceived as a large covered open space providing access to the train platforms, but also to several, retail and restaurant areas. The station will provide new access to the world famous archaeological area of Pompei and is to become a new landmark for this important tourist destination.
Interplan developed for this project an innovative interior ceiling system made of specially made fire rated fiberglass panels. Final design was completed in 2009 and construction is expected within 2011.
