Rosemont is a station on the Orange Line of Montreal's Metro. Its name originates from the nearby boulevard Rosemont.
The station has only one entrance, which is integrated into the ground floor of a building. Escalators and stairs quickly lead people down to the mezzanine level below. Throughout the station, various shades of red tiling adorn the station and create its unique look.
The mezzanine area is rather large and long and leads directly to the access of the platforms. A large and wide walkway crosses the tracks below to grant access to the opposite platform.
The ceiling in this area is rather high and is painted black and not illuminated. This creates the impression that you are outdoors in the evening. Nice red tiled columns rise up from the floor and reach the ceiling. The seating areas are recessed into the walls with the signature red tiles at their back.
All these elements combine to create a very tasteful and pleasant station, that is both easy to navigate and calming to be in.
What makes Rosemont unique is the frequent use of the red shaded tiling, which is present throughout the station. Whether it is found on the wall above the escalators near the entrance, on the walkway and pillars in the mezzanine and platforms, to even on the seating areas, the use of the colour red is an undeniable identifying element of this beautiful station.
