Nizhegorodskaya Metro Station to be Decorated in Avant-Garde Style
Nizhegorodskaya metro station will be decorated in avant-garde style. The main artistic technique of Supremacism, which is a combination of geometric forms of bright colors, will be used in the design.
The project was approved by Moskomarkhitektura. Thus, the ceilings in the ticket halls will be decorated with large yellow and orange square lamps. The tunnel walls and rectangular columns of the platform will also be yellow and orange. They will contrast with the gray color of the ceiling and walls. Bright orange benches in the form of cubes will be placed along the platform.
“When developing the station project, the authors were inspired by the paintings of Kazimir Malevich, Lazar Lissitzky, Nikolai Suetin and other suprematists. The ideas borrowed from the masters allowed the architects to create one of the most spectacular metro stations in the capital. The interiors of the platform will simultaneously include orange, yellow, green, blue, white, gray and black” – said Chief Architect of Moscow, Sergey Kuznetsov.
He added that the station will also have hard lighting. The light will vary from warm yellow to cold blue. Ceilings will be assembled from metal aluminum panels with LEDs built into them. The walls will be faced with granite and natural gray stone, and the floors will be paved with polished and glassed granite.
Nekrasovskaya metro station of the Nizhegorodskaya line is being built in the south-east of the capital, on Nizhegorodskaya Street near its intersection with Ryazansky Prospekt. Trains of two metro lines at once – the Nekrasovskaya and the Bolshaya Koltsevaya line - will arrive at the new station. For this, two platforms will be built so that four trains can arrive simultaneously.
Two exits are required by the project. One of them will lead to Nizhegorodskaya station of the Moscow Central Circle (MCC) and the platform of Karacharovo, Gorkovsky direction of Moscow Railway, the other one will go to Ryazansky Prospekt.
After the construction is completed, the new station will make part of Ryazanskaya transfer hub, one of the largest in the capital. It will combine metro, MCC, rail and road means of transport.
The first section of the Nekrasovskaya metro line was launched in early summer. It includes four stations: Kosino, Ulitsa Dmitriyevskogo, Lukhmanovskaya and Nekrasovka. It is almost seven kilometers long.
In total, there will be eight stations on the new branch: Nizhegorodskaya, Stakhanovskaya, Okskaya, Yugo-Vostochnaya, Kosino, Ulitsa Dmitriyevskogo, Lukhmanovskaya and Nekrasovka. After the construction is completed, the length of the Nekrasovskaya line will exceed 15 kilometers. The pink line will connect Nekrasovka and Nizhegorodsky districts.
