PROSPEKT MARSHALA ZHUKOVA

Project of the Rublevo-Arkhangelsk line station
Moscow metro

The interior design concept for the Marshal Zhukov Prospect metro station was completed as part of an international competition (https://design-metro.ru/en) in a consortium with the Alllevels architectural and engineering bureau (https://www.alllevels.ru/). This is a typical shallow underground station with one island platform and two rows of columns.
The interchange station is located in the alignment of Demyan Bednogo Street at the intersection with Marshal Zhukov Avenue. It connects two metro lines - the Third interchange circuit and the Rublevo-Arkhangelsk radius. The facility will be located in the Khoroshevo-Mnevniki district of the North-Western administrative district and will become a key transit point.




The uninterrupted life of Moscow consists of many elements, among which opposites are often found. It is this slice of life of our society that laid the foundation for the concept of station architecture: the clash, struggle and harmony of the two elements. Solemn and ordinary, luxurious and modest, religious and secular - their close interweaving forces a person to constantly seek balance.
On the one hand, gold trim, referring to the rich centuries-old history of the Khoroshevo-Mnevniki district. On the other hand, the white neutral part is a symbol of an open modern future. Here at the junction of measurements, in harmony of the two elements, light is born - the personification of the present.

The luminous zigzag displacement of the two types of finishes supports the main idea and creates dynamics in the simple volume of the station. It is complemented by lighting at the base of columns and benches, which visually facilitates them. The light reflection of the boundary line on the ceiling reminds us of the importance of following the rules and additionally illuminates the landing area.

Gold on white, white on gold - such a game makes the space asymmetric and vibrant. The gray flooring sets off the main colors and serves the practical purpose of active use. The station name font based on the poster graphics of the forties of the last century pays tribute to the difficult and heroic Soviet past.

Made on
