Architecture of Opalchenska metro station

The architectural layout is created by arch. I. Stanishev and arch. Kr. Andreev. A draft, created by the same authors and put up to competitive procedure, served as a basis for the final design. The platform and the vestibules look modern. The platform is without columns. The floors are tiled with ceramic panels in brown-beige and green, corresponding to the outlook of the ceiling. The ceiling is made of vertical aluminum frames, forming figures with color stripes at the edges, placed above the lighting fixture. There are groups of stainless steel benches mounted around the illuminants. Sloping metal panels framed with blue and green stripes are put on the walls of the platform. There are niches on the walls intended for fitting of advertisements. The main lighting fixture is installed into inclined milk-white planes, placed at both ends of the platform. In the vestibules it is installed into suspended ceilings. The vestibules are tiled with granite and aluminum plates, while the underpasses are implemented with mineral masonry, forming geometric shapes. The suspended ceilings are white, made of 30 cm components Hunter Douglas type, longitudinally arranged with colored stripes. The entrances are faced with beige marble and polycarbonate arch-shaped coverings.
