Chosen the project to rehabilitate the headquarters of the railway museum

The Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda (Mitma) has chosen the project with which it will rehabilitate the Madrid-Delicias station, headquarters of the Railway Museum, with works that will cost 14.5 million euros and that plan to “recover the original spirit of the station. “

The winning proposal, “1878-1880”, is the work of the GVG Architecture Studio, formed by Daniel Galar Irure, Josecho Vélez Ballesteros and Javier Gil Ayesa, who propose “recovering the original spirit” of the station and “enhancing” its urban capabilities and social, reports the Ministry in a note.

Mitma says it is finalizing the award of the tender – promoted in coordination with Adif and the Spanish Railways Foundation – to rehabilitate this station, which turned 140 years old last March.

The Government will invest 1.2 million euros in contracting the master plan, the drafting of the project and the optional management of the works, charged to the credits of the architectural rehabilitation program, while the renovation and expansion works of the museum will cost 14.5 million.

Specifically, the funds will come from the ‘Architectural Heritage Rehabilitation Program’ and the ‘1.5% Cultural Program’.

The team from Estudio de Arquitectura GVG will prepare the execution project and will assume the optional management of the works, adds the ministry.

Specifically, the works will have a first phase for the museum conditioning of the station’s old passenger building, which will involve the rehabilitation of roofs, structure and facades, the transformation of the lobby, and the construction of a new access and reforms in the exterior urbanization.

In the next stage, the structural and constructive restoration and consolidation of the canopy of the central nave will be undertaken, the rehabilitation of the main roof structure and facades, and the exterior urbanization works on the north and south facades.

The last phases are dedicated to the restoration of the interior and exterior facades and the covers of the lateral bodies of the passenger building.

The project, adds the Ministry, also foresees an urban regeneration in the surroundings of the station, where a walkable boulevard will be created on the access roads and new buildings for exhibition, workshop and storage.

Thirteen teams of architects participated in the call, whose works have been evaluated by a jury made up of professionals appointed on the proposal of Adif, the Spanish Railways Foundation, the Madrid College of Architects, the Madrid City Council, the Ministry of Culture and Mitma himself.
