milan-based practice stefano boeri and dotdotdot has designed the services center for italy’s new high speed train line, ‘casa .italo’ within the train stations in bologna, florence, naples and milan garibaldi and rogoredo. a fluid and high-technology design caters to italo travelers. for efficiency to passengers, the recognizable red exterior surfaces support the purchase of tickets with vending machines as well as a clock and display for train arrival and departure times without entering. the open and permeable entry introduces visitors into an interactive and communicative interior.

 

inside, additional screens with information and ticket purchases lines the perimeter as well as internet-capable interfaces. sensors detect the proximity of people to automatically change their function between information panels and ticketing screens. circular tables with stationary chairs allow uninterrupted circulation and fold down seats built into the walls. wifi and charging of personal devices. additional spaces are planned for the rome, venice, mestre, turin, salerno and padua stations.
