In view of the World Cup 2018, the city of Moscow has decided to redevelop several buildings and public spaces, including 96 metro stations (180 lobbies and the surrounding pedestrian crossings).
Based on the time constraints, it was decided segmentation of all stations into 4 categories and the subsequent formation of architectural proposals for each category.
Categories have been identified for the proposed scope of work at each station and the level of intervention in the original look:
– Shops and advertising.
General approach to the repair involves upgrading of the current appearance of hallways and passages. In most cases it is provided replacement of current materials to more modern, such as enamelled steel, granite flooring, suspended ceiling designs.
It involves the replacement of lighting elements with more modern, installing new trim boxes, repair and painting ceilings, replacement of doors entrance vestibules, replacing the post controller and turnstiles, installation of new facilities for trade and service (UTS) vending machines and advertising media.
Retail will be located through the installation of modular structures, arranged in almost all stations. In the last part, the retail facilities will also be made on the individual design projects.
Planned repairs to close the perimeter and upgrade the appearance of existing shelters, production and installation of new roofing, where they do not exist or can not be repaired.
