Solntsevo Metro station in Moscow by Nefa Architects

From the architect: The concept is site specific and based on two main subjects: Sun light, its architectural comprehension and a characteristic slope roof of a  summer cottage “dacha”. Name of the site inspired the Sun motif and the slope roof motif came from the history of the area, that in 1920s and 30s was one of the first places designated for workers settlements.

Perforation of the entrance pavilions creates an effect of sunbeams penetrating the roof, in the underground halls we use same effect but generated by reflected artificial light instead of daylight.

The outdoor pavilions are assembled from a number of white concrete panels, on the outside concrete is textured with vertical grooves that are repeating the lines of joints between panels. The notches are visible in order to highlight the rhythm of the facade.
