Lotus Central Station

WTA Architecture and Design Studio as Architects

The site with the total area of 6.4 hectares is an outer suburb of Metro Manila, which is the southern end route of all City Buses making the vicinity the second busiest transport terminal in Metro Manila. The site is also part of the Filinvest Corporate City 244 hectare mixed-use development project located at the southern end of Metro Manila and adjacent to South Expressway in Alabang. With the upscale neighborhood and the rapid development of Filinvest Corporate City, the vicinity became the major gateway to Alabang and also for the commuters going into and out of Metro Manila from the south.

Coalescence. To bring together the passengers and land transportation systems in a terminal and gradually grow as the users and logistic providers respectively, in order to participate with the government’s vision of having a seamless integration of transport system to enhance the development potential of the country.

The objective is to consolidate the transportation, passenger and their activities in a terminal where safety and comfort are the priorities. The terminal offers 3 vehicular entry points, where private vehicles, jeepneys and shuttle services, and provincial and city buses are segregated from each other upon entry with individual drop off areas for effective unloading of passengers in the terminal. A split level terminal for loading of departing passengers, one level for buses and the second level for jeepneys and shuttle services. This will avoid the crossing of pedestrian and vehicular path in a terminal that caters multiple land transportation system. Monitoring of departing vehicles in one vantage point is easy rather than having a clustered terminal. A major road with 3 lanes leading to express way within the terminal is for the departing provincial buses, this will prevent vehicular congestion in the terminal.
