Bo’ao Railway Station

Located 10km away from the Boao BBS site, this railway station is an importation hub for visitors to the beautiful town. A scene of tropic paradise is offered by the steel structure colonnade which also shades the front space from the sunlight and rain. The white color of the steel frame is a response to the logo of Boao BBS, white tent. The massing strategy makes the building into three individual volumes, which are connected with patios to weaken the stress of huge volume and provide more natural ventilation channels for cost consideration.
