ENTRANCE LOBBY OF BCL KLENOVY BULVAR STATION IS DESIGNED IN STYLE OF 17TH CENTURY PALACE

The Mosinzhproekt Group of Companies is a general designer and general contractor for the construction of new lines and stations of the Moscow Metro.

The silhouettes of the ground pavilions of the Klenovy Bulvar station of the Big Circle Line (BCL) resemble the architecture of the palace in the Kolomenskoye Museum Reserve, according to Mr. Andrey Bochkarev, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Urban Planning and Construction.

“The artistic look of the BCL Klenovy Bulvar station entrance lobbies is defined by the seamless transition of the walls and ceiling of the entrances to the pavilions.

According to the architects’ design, it refers to the stylistics of the nearby palace of Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich in the Kolomenskoye Museum Reserve”, noted Mr. Andrey Bochkarev.

According to him, the external walls of the pavilions are finished with metal embossed panels with lighting around the roof perimeter, and the walls and ceiling are clad with aluminium honeycomb three-layer panels.

“The architectural decoration within the premises of the station’s concourse is fully complete”, added Deputy Mayor.

Mr. Yuri Kravtsov, CEO, Mosinzhproekt JSC, specified that spotlights which imitated the starry sky had been integrated into the ceiling panels, with 1,500 lamps in the ticket hall and another 2,800 in the pedestrian passage.

“The architectural design of the station was selected within an open international architectural competition organised by Mosinzhproekt GC”, recalled the head of the engineering holding.

The Klenovy Bulvar station is constructed on the same name street near the entrance to the Kolomenskoye Park. It envisages three exits to the city: the first will lead to the Kolomenskoye Museum Reserve and ground transport stops, the second will take you to Kolomenskaya Street and Klenovy Boulevard, while the third will lead to Building No. 25 on Kolomenskaya Street.

In addition to the Klenovy Bulvar station, the 11 km long eastern section of the BCL includes the Nagatinsky Zaton, Pechatniki and Tekstilshchiki stations. Its opening will improve transport accessibility for a number of districts in the southeast of Moscow.

The creation of the Big Circle Line is the main project of the Moscow Metro construction. Its length will exceed 70 km, and it will accommodate 31 stations, 22 of which are already open to passengers.

On 30 December, Mr. Sergei Sobyanin, Mayor of Moscow, performed a technical launch of the eastern section of the Big Circle Line of the Moscow Metro.

“Congratulations on a great event in the Moscow Metro, the completion of the last section of the Big Circle Line, which is the largest project in the world of circle metro lines and the largest project in the Moscow Metro history”, stated Mr. Sergei Sobyanin.
