Columns and Ceiling in Govorovo Station will be Illuminated
According to the portal mos.ru., unusual lighting will become the main feature of the artistic image of Govorovo Station of Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya Metro Line. Perforated surfaces of the columns and the ceiling of the platform hall will be illuminated. Moskomarchitectura approved the project developed by Metrogiprotrans.
“Govorovo Station will have bright modern design, the main feature of which will be the light concept. Light of different colors will be used — yellow, white and violet. The columns, where the light is hidden behind perforated stone slabs, will be illuminated through holes. On the ceiling there will be fluorescent lamps arranged in an interesting way that forms a pattern resembling a labyrinth. According to the Mayor of Moscow, Sergey Sobyanin, prolongation of the Yellow Line, where Govorovo Station will be the closest to the Moscow Ring Road, will significantly improve transport system in the West of Moscow,” said the Chief Architect of Moscow, Sergey Kuznetsov.
Govorovo Station has an island platform connected with the entrance halls by means of staircases and elevators. The columns located in the center of the platform hall will be lined with gabbro and labradorite panels with decorative perforation holes. The holes will be filled with glass so that the internal illumination will create a unique pattern in the form of luminous drops on the surface of the columns.
The pedestals and overhead parts of the columns are also supposed to be illuminated, which will visually expand the space of the station.
The suspended ceiling over the platform is planned to be made with a mirror surface of deep black color, against which contour fluorescent lamps with geometric pattern will be placed. Additional reflections will appear on the floor lined with polished grey granite slabs. The tunnel walls will be lined with ceramic metal panels of light gray color.
Govorovo Station will be located in Solntsevo District, on the border with Moskovsky Settlement. The entrance halls will be built in the area of Borovskoye Highway and Tatyanin Park Street crossing.
According to Marat Khusnullin, Deputy Mayor of Moscow in the Government of Moscow for Urban Development and Construction, the station is scheduled to open before the end of 2017 as part of Ramenki — Solntsevo line.
