Yugo-Vostochnaya Station to be Decorated in Central Asian Palaces Style
Yugo-Vostochnaya station on the Nekrasovskaya line of the Moscow Metro will be decorated in the style of palaces of Central Asia. Round light-reflecting ceiling lamps will be a specific feature of the station, said Chief Architect of Moscow Sergey Kuznetsov.
Yugo-Vostochnaya is being built in Vykhino-Zhulebino District, at the intersection of Ferganskaya and Tashkentskaya streets. Its design closely echoes the historical architecture of the southeastern region, the toponymic names of which are reflected in the names of the nearby streets. The station is designed as the so-called "coastal" type station. The total area including ticket halls will be about 16,000 sq.m.
“This is a low-depth underground station with side naves. Its design reminds of the architecture of Central Asia. Thus, the ceiling will be decorated with round light-reflecting lamps resembling the domes of minarets, and the dividing wall between the platforms is made in the shape of inverted arches with battlements, this is a very characteristic detail. The color solution also refers to the Central Asian buildings - the station will be performed in beige, yellow, black and gray. Earlier, Mayor Sergey Sobyanin said that with the full launch of the Nekrasovskaya line, transport accessibility will improve for 800,000 people living in Moscow and around the city”- Sergey Kuznetsov explained.
The floor will be covered with brown granite, and the walls will be decorated with travertine, polished limestone. On the ceiling there will be metal cassettes painted in dark colors. According to the Chief Architect of Moscow, finishing work is already underway at the station.
Subway kiosks will be built in the same style as the station itself. The designer is Lenmetrogiprotrans ОАО.
