Architectural design:

The design of the station is dedicated to the architecture of St. Petersburg, and two mosaic panels were made on the same theme (artists S. N. Repin, V. V. Sukhov, I. G. Uralov, N. P. Fomin). Mosaic "Architecture of St. Petersburg" is located opposite the exit to the city and is a triumphal column crowned with a Corinthian capital with a stone disk leaning against it, on which the names of the architects who built the great city are carved. The column is flanked by open gates with decorative elements of St. Petersburg buildings. From above, the composition is closed by a coffered arched vault.

In the transition "Sennaya Square" - "Spasskaya Square" on the marble wall is carved the history of the renaming of St. Petersburg.
