Nydalen Metro Station consists of a detached entrance pavilion on street level, while the 110-metre long platform area lies 12 metres underground. The pavilion's architecture is expressed through a composition of horizontal and vertical levels and planes, which are dynamically cast off in relation to each other. The closely-built wall planes are made of black basalt, contrasting and complementing a cast-off glass box in red, symbolizing the red metro wagons. This stands as a signal for the station and allows a glimpse of the escalators ascending from the tunnel. Installed around the escalators are 1800 neon lights and 44 loudspeakers. This 'Tunnel of Light' is a work of art where light, music, technology and architecture become an integral and unified whole.
