Naples Metro: The new Station of Line 1 

The station consists of an underground building with an Omega-shaped plan, some 50 meters deep from ground level, with an atrium at sight, at road level, topped by an hangar-style roof in a mixed steel-glass-concrete structure with plan dimensions of 50×48 meters, positioned at 10 meters in height.

The rectangular part of the omega houses all station service systems, while the circular part, with an internal diameter of 33 meters, consists of a single open space with 8 lifts, in a central position, and 4 helical staircases that spin upwards in a screw-line manner, in cantilever, on the circular wall.

Three by-passes connect the landing area of the lifts to the two station tunnels, which are 110 meters in length, with a diameter of 8.90 meters. They were created by consolidating the ground through jet grouting and full-section excavation.
