RAILWAY STATIONS IN GHANA

Regeneration of the Railway Stations along the Accra - Tema Line in Ghana, Africa

The proposal for the rehabilitation of the railway line along the Accra - Tema corridor will contribute to the improvement of the general infrastructures of Accra. At the same time, the design aims to embrace the particularity of the Ghanaian people, the landscape and the cultures. Those aspects are considered in an attempt for a long-term physical regeneration of the railway corridor of Ghana. On a smaller scale, every design tries to contribute significantly to the improvement and development of all the adjacent areas to the railway stations. The design - both architecture and urban - give importance to the spatial connectivity between the areas on both sides of the railway with different elements / bridges that, besides connecting the multiple platforms, allow a greater permeability of the urban fabric around the stations. At the same time, the projected spaces around them are focused on the ways public spaces connect both physical and social layers in each location in the city of Accra, emphasizing on the distinctive identity of the region around it. The design of the buildings is based on the geometry of the existing railway stations. The trigonometric rooftops, characteristic elements of those structures, are the basis of the concept design.
