Bulgaria goes loopy with metro design

Bulgaria goes loopy with metro design

A curvaceous  metro station has been proposed for Sofia, Bulgaria, as a main connection between the city centre and airport.

Designed by Berlin-based Peter Ruge Architekten, ‘Station 20’ is inspired by the pattern and scale of the neighbouring high-density housing blocks in the Druzhba residential quarter.

The sweeping canopy of the entrance hall emerges out of the landscape as a ‘wave’, while an underground concourse level is accessed via a vast corner plaza.

The station’s concourse level has been extended to accommodate 120,000 passengers per day and includes a shopping court.
