Station designEdit

Serpukhovskaya station was designed by Nina Aleshina with Leonid N. Pavlov [ru] and Lydia Y. Gonchar (Russian: Лидия Юрьевна Гончар).[1] The station features grey and white vaults. There is a three-vault span with white marble lines in the main hallway. The bottoms of the columns holding the ceiling are clad in marble carved so as to look like brick and stone. The shiny textures and surfaces cause intense light reflection. A string of lights hung in the main archway; it was dismantled on 2 March 2006.
