The above-ground vestibule was designed by A.S. Getskin and V.P. Shuvalova, and the subterranean elements of the project were designed by architect A.K. Andreev and engineer G.A. Skobennikov.
The station is 35 metres (115 ft) deep, and belongs to one of the deepest underground systems in the world. It was among the first on the Metro to introduce a "closed-type" design where the running tunnels and tracks are isolated from the platform by thick walls, and access to trains is regulated with automatically opening and closing platform screen doors - a world first.
