The Krakow Airport railway station project started in 2010 when three architectural concepts were proposed. Each idea offered a different form, however, all employed the same materials and were based on the same functional schema, consisting of a platform and 2 tracks on the ground floor and a passenger facilities area on the first floor.
The chosen design was based on two clearly articulated elements. The first is a platform with a green roof and a partition. The glass panels of the screen allow sunlight to illuminate the interior of the station while also providing acoustic insulation. The second section is a 'glass box' which shields the horizontal passenger area, namely the stairs, elevators, and moving walkway.
The railway station is connected to the airport terminal by a footbridge which is also a link to the multilevel garage and hotel. From an urban perspective, all the buildings and transport facilities are contained in a compact and space-efficient complex.
Taking part in every stage of the project from conception to building permit and construction design gave me a great deal of practical experience. I was involved in the construction work from 2014 to 2015 as part of my formal construction practice allowing me to obtain the Architectural License in Poland.
