The metro station "Krasnogvardeyskaya" Zamoskvoretskayaline of the Moscow Metro has not such a big story. It was commissioned in 1985. For more than a quarter of a century it played the role of the terminal station in this direction of the Zamoskvoretskaya line - and only in 2012 the metro moved further, to the south.
The metro station "Krasnogvardeyskaya"
Hardly this station can be considered a masterpieceunderground architecture of the center of Moscow, but it does not suffer from a complete lack of expressiveness. In its appearance, a certain golden mean is observed between the alyapia luxury of the architecture of the Stalin Empire and the complete absence of architectural excesses of the subsequent Khrushchev's decade. Everything is balanced here. Structurally the metro station "Krasnogvardeiskaya" is a spacious one-vaulted structure of shallow laying. The main material is monolithic reinforced concrete. The station's casing is designed in the form of long coffered rows that cover the whole space. The lower part of the room is faced with red and gray grades of marble. The end parts are decorated with stained-glass windows on the theme of the October Revolution. A characteristic feature of the metro station "Krasnogvardeyskaya" is the location of the stands with its name in the center of the hall, and not on the side walls, as it often happens. There are four outlets to the city for different streets of the intersection and two underground vestibules on opposite sides. There are no above-ground structures. But the station organically fit into the life of the southern outskirts of a large metropolis - and present without it today the transport network would be very difficult. Even for real estate structures, its presence greatly increases the capitalization of real estate objects located in the immediate vicinity of the metro.
