Biotech style: what will the new station of Kommunarskaya metro line look like

October 26, 2019
Construction and renovation

Kommunarka metro station (operating name Stolbovo) of Kommunarskaya metro line will be designed in a modern biotech style meaning that all construction and decoration elements will resemble various wildlife elements in their shape and colour. The new station's design has been approved by the Moscow City Architecture Committee.

'Kommunarka station's design is abundant in green colour, typical of biotech style. The architects sought to emphasise the proximity of the station to the natural grounds of Troitsky and Novomoskovsky administrative areas,' said Moscow's Chief Architect Sergei Kuznetsov.

Tunnel walls on the platform and the rectangular columns in the lobby will be green, to contrast with the light grey unusually shaped ceiling. In the lobby, it will be decorated with aluminium air-moved slats to give the illusion of breeze. The platform ceiling will have decorative niches to make it look like birch bark. The floor will be made of light granite.

The new Kommunarka station is under construction in Sosenskoye settlement in close proximity to Stolbovo village of Troitsky and Novomoskovsky administrative areas. The station is expected to open in 2023. It will have one lobby with exits to both sides of the planned highway to the existing and projected residential development and surface urban public transport stops. From Kommunarka station of Kommunarskaya line, passengers will transfer to the same-name station of Sokolnicheskaya line.

Kommunarskaya line will exceed 30 km. It will have 16 metro stations, linked by transfers with three other Moscow metro lines, and the Moscow Central Circle. Kommunarskaya line will actually become an alternate route of the southern sections of Sokolnicheskaya and Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya lines.
