Atelier King Kong has unveiled the design of the new Vitry-Centre metro station in Vitry-sur-Seine, part of the Grand Paris public transport network. The station, located in the southeast portion of the red line of the Grand Paris Express, is a town center station that provides access to the Town Hall and sports and cultural facilities, “links to existing above-ground transport networks (buses) and services to come (tramway), and connects with the RD5, one of the main north-south highways of the southeastern Paris region." Learn more about the design after the break.

The station was designed organically around the Parc du Coteau, with its exterior forecourt extending into a covered concourse that slopes down into the station.

Additionally, a green vault spans above the concourse, connecting with the park and offering enticing views between the park and the station.

The station is a part of an ambitious long-term project of 15 line segments and 16 stations, and will be in service in 2022.
