Maritime Station

[baragano] as Architects

“The boat passing by a transformation from inexorable weight to floating structure…I remember mi fear and my surprise in that moment…and has become in a recurring dream “ Richard Serra


We were invited to propose to the Port Authority of Gijón, a project for the future Maritime Station of The See Highway. The building will serve to the future lines that will link Gijón with Nantes (France) and in the future with Cork (Ireland). The building must be working in six months and we have to consider the option of building expansion in a near future. The programme has two different areas, pre-embarkation and embarkation, as well as a large-scale parking, mainly for trucks. Located in De La Osa Pier, in Gijón Port, The Musel, the building is planned as a modular one, with steel structure and opening to the sea. The modules have 3,60 m. wide and 15 m. length maximum. The façade is a mineral-wool panel in different and basic colours (RGB), a typical material in the port environment. The structural system is about steel modules, made in the factory and assembled on site. In this way we get a short timing and a high optimization.
