The station is the first in Moscow to be built to a new design known as a single deck. In such a case the ceiling plate is made of individual long concrete slabs that are used for automobile bridges and they are lowered on the strengthened walls of the station. Moreover, this space automatically includes the vestibules and other construction details allowing more efficient and economical approach. The architect V.Volovich took the extra space offered by the high ceiling and revetted the walls with enameled aluminium consisting of a pale yellow colour high up and red lower down. The floor is covered with grey granite. Innovative design also came for the lighting which consists of centrally mounted poles with square floodlamps on either side. Also unique are two yellow booths which contain benches for passengers to sit on.
The station has two underground vestibules which are located under the Volzhsky boulevard.
