Architectural Council of Moscow approved the concept of Textilshchiki Metro station of the BKL
At the meeting on March 6, the Archcouncil of Moscow approved the concept of Tekstilshchiki Metro station on the Bolshaya Koltsevaya Line (BKL). The station will have a contemporary architectural and artistic style, said the Chief Architect of Moscow, Sergey Kuznetsov.
In October 2018, the Architectural Council of Moscow already reviewed a concept of Textilshchiki Metro station and sent it back for revision. The main recommendation was to use a starker design and to pay more attention to the comfort of passengers in the planning solutions. The designers, Lenmetrogiprotrans OJSC, took into account all of the experts’ comments.
“We endorse the project of the station. The progress in its development is remarkable. A compliment to my colleagues: you were very attentive to our comments and the result is good”, – said Sergey Kuznetsov.
Textilshchiki Metro station is a shallow-level station with two side platforms, that is, trains in both directions will pass through the same tunnel. However, one can only see the other train from a particular perspective – the tracks are separated by a wall with elements resembling blinds. It was decided to use shades of gray and white on the platform: porcelain stoneware and natural stone. Also, architects offer several lighting solutions, in particular, blue lights. The ceiling of the lobby over the gates will be decorated with overhead arch-shaped light fixtures. Overground pavilions will give a dynamic feel, made of spaces of varying sizes with the emphasis on color.
The head of the project is Mosinzhproekt JSC.
