Langelier is a station on the Green Line of the Montreal Metro.
It was named in honour of Langelier Boulevard, which was named in honour of politician Sir François Langelier.
The station has three entrances: 6595 Sherbrooke East, 6610 Sherbrooke East and 3355 Langelier. The three entrances, which are at 3 corners of an intersection, share a beautiful sombre square design in tones of granite. Only the lights and metro logo are added to the exterior.
The mezzanine is in the form of an arch, which reminds us of most Washington, D.C. metro stations. When you add the lights on the ceiling, it adds an element of design unique to this station. It is situated at a level relatively close to the tracks so you quickly feel the ambiance of the subway.
The stairs leading to the side platforms are beautifully designed, and a stainless steel ramp, visible from the platform, matches the stainless steel that is present all around the platforms, most notably the circular cut-outs sculptural grilles made by Charles Daudelin.
There are a few points of interest around the station. The mall Centre Domaine may be the most famous place near it.
The grilles of Daudelin are quite unique. Also, the lights above the entrance's doors are between two squares with holes in front of circles which is a unique design element.
As with so many things as far as this station is concerned, it all goes back to the stainless steel grilles of Charles Daudelin, which are classic yet original with each one having a different color inside the opening.
