Budapest Underground Line M4 – Kálvin tér Station in Hungary by Palatium Stúdió Ltd.

Underground line M4 in Budapest, Hungary has been the largest infrastructure project of the city for the last decades. Kálvin tér is one of the largest stations on the new line, due to its position as an interchange station with line M3 under a busy inner city square. The complex functional requirements of the station have resulted in a rather complex spatial arrangement. Since the initial decision was to use cut-and-cover construction technologies to create station structures, the basic architectural idea was to use the advantages of this system, and create large open spaces over the platforms. In our case, the main spatial attractions are the structural elements with their characteristic curved forms. Approaching passengers can feel the drama of movement in space as the escalators are placed freely in the void of the huge open concrete box. Arriving by the elevators through the strata of space holds a similar surprise. The roughness of the surfaces of the large structural elements and the perimeter walls is balanced by the fine finishes of elements closer to the passengers. The interconnection tunnel between the two underground lines has a vivid colour scheme which creates a link between two epochs of urban infrastructure.
