What I can see

This spacious station is particularly impressive for its shape from above. Its two exits are on either side of Doukissis Plakentias Street and have a semi-circular shape. Along the road there are two corrugated roofs, each of which rests on 4 metal beams in front of glass shells with a metal frame. The extensive use of glass partially allows a flow of natural light to enter the passengers level. The plan view of these shells resembles parts of four concentric circles, with the shell of one exit acting as a “reflection” of the other. In addition, within the station there are the impressive visual installations “Space Poetry” (Christos Karas, 2004) and “Images in Material” (Rena Papaspyrou, 2010).

What I can't see

The name of the station comes from the eponymous district. The station is not located at  the district’s centre, however, but within its limits, and thus does not cover a large part of it.
