Overview

Western Station is one of four Iconic Stations of the new Riyadh Metro. The design proposal, for this remarkable 110.000 m2, aims to be a catalyst for urban renewal, demonstrating a design reflective of local culture and heritage with a landmark quality.
The new urban "crossroad", will host an above ground Metro Station, Bus Station, underground Park & Ride facility, a Market, Mosque and vast public plaza. This "Western Place" unfolds into a complex hierarchical landscape that alternates a series of open spaces with more intimate ones, through the skilled combination of natural and artificial elements.
