Appreciation towards AMOO + Mora-Sanvisens Arquitectes for providing the following description:


The Monistrol-Vila station is the main station of the Montserrat Rack Railway. The new offices are located on the southwest facade of the rack railway platform, elevated above the station, formed by a long concrete wall, which supports it and bridges the gap between the platform level of the Rack Railway and the access and exit road from the parking lot of coaches.

At this point, the lower platform houses the current space given to the association Friends of the Rack Railway and an available space. In this last space, new offices are installed for the administrative staff of FGC, who currently carried out their activities in a space that had become small and obsolete, and in turn, disconnected from the most important public service points in the day to day of the station.

To give visibility to the new facilities and dignify their condition, a new wall-clad facade is projected unifying the two spaces, placing large panels of undulated micro-perforated metal sheet framed with galvanized steel profiles that cover and modulate all the accidents of required and existing air conditioning openings and installations. The large concrete wall is no longer an accidental closure for the under-platform and, architecturally, it has become an office base under a roof with a use as a platform, reinforcing its programmatic complexity and adding interest to the whole.

The entrances are framed in the lower plinth with large canopies and different finishes in closures. Inside, the new offices are distributed applying FGC finishing standards for office spaces.
