The Municipality of Tenereife faced the long term dilemma of providing a solution to serious problem of Traffic. The proposal represented the solving of the daily commute of the labor force from the northern side of the island to the hotel complex on the southern side in the form of public transport by train. The first phase represented the southern route from the city of Santa Cruz from the west. The Candelaria station is one of the stops on this route.

SIEBERT + TALAŠ designed the station with the requirement of minimal impact to the environment and use of readily available local materials. The entrance to the station overlooks the nearby sea, and provide the first experience for visitors of Candelaria. The SIEBERT + TALAŠ design received 3rd Place in the international competition.
