Tren Urbano Las Lomas Station

San Juan

The station was configured with lateral platforms and an elevated viaduct. Visual connection in between the interior and exterior of the station was used as a security mechanism through the placement of angled entrance walls. Select fenestration on the ground level, carefully considered circulation patterns, and strict access control were other mechanisms used to ensure a secure station. Operators in the entrance control booths have clear visual angles towards the main areas inside the station as well as towards the sidewalk and exterior surroundings. The cantilevered roof recalls that of the Torrimar Station, marking the presence of the station from a distance.


A plaza, new landscaping and a large scale sculpture act as a first step in the revitalization of the fragmented and deteriorated urban sector.
