Outremont is a station on the Blue Line of Montreal's Metro. Its name comes from the borough of Outremont in which the station is located.
The station has one large entrance with a skylight. This area leads down to the mezzanine level at which a beautiful, glazed terra cotta mural on the wall can be seen.
After passing through the fare gates on the mezzanine, you pass into a space with a very high ceiling, just above the trains below. The beautiful architecture of the station is very reminiscent of the surrounding neighbourhood, and even includes an old green Borough of Outremont lamp post on the Saint-Michel platform.
The whole station and especially the mezzanine and platform areas are adorned with brown terra cotta tiles, which create a warm and bright space. Seating at the platform level is with stone benches.
The station has a big feel to it, from the bright walls and colours to the old Outremont lamp post at the platform level. The mural on the mezzanine is also quite beautiful to see.
The main art piece, created by Gilbert Poissant, is located on the mezzanine level and is a mural created with glazed terra cotta tiles and conveys the feeling of a stroll through the streets of Outremont, by transposing the neighbourhood architectural elements into the metro station.
