Konkovo (Russian: Конько́во) is a station on the Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya Line of the Moscow Metro.

Design[edit]

It was designed by N. Shumakov, G. Mun, and N. Shurygina and opened on 6 November 1987 with the southward extension of the line; the station is of a single vault design, the only one on the radius. Its cross-section is meant to resemble two rows of sickles with the blades pointing inward, a design feature enhanced by the recessed light fixtures and metal accent strips in the spaces between the plaster ceiling panels; the bases of the vault is strongly recessed and faced with reddish ceramic tile.

The entrances to Konkovo are located at the intersection of Profsoyuznaya and Ostrovityanova streets.
