The Bayard station, completed in 1839, united Naples with the city of Portici and was the first Italian railway connection. The ancient Bourbon factory has long been in a state of total abandonment: the vegetation completely covers the construction, preventing the perception of the volumes that compose it. The competition aims to enhance the building by identifying new function; the intervention will have to safeguard part of the previous masonry walls and foresee contemporary-style logics as happened for the recovery project of the nearby BRIN69. It will become a Service Center with hotel rooms and offices that allows people in transit to find a temporary location and to the local community to rent new work spaces as identified by urban planning for the area of Naples East. A pole of attraction that with a new function becomes an element of union between past and present.
