Agios Antonios Metro Station

The Agios Antonios Metro Station's extensive use of glass allows the entry of natural light and the direct viewing of artistic compositions.

What I can see

The architecture of the station follows a bioclimatic logic. There is an extensive use of glass in the entrances and ticket level, which allows natural light to flow and even reach the platforms. These vertical glass surfaces also allow the direct view of artistic compositions, which are located at the entrances. Rock gardens at the entrance however are not considered particularly successful. The station does not lack ergonomics, as its ground plan is simple and at the same time has sufficient space to host stores. Apart from glass, aluminum is a material which is also used extensively.

What I can't see

It was the northern terminal station of line 2 from 2004 to 2013. It is located in Peristeri district, but its name comes from the nearby church of Agios Antonios.
