is a rapid transit station operated by the Toronto Transit Commission in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located at 6 Spadina Road, which is situated north of Bloor Street West.
The architect that designed the Line 1 addition over the existing Line 2 station in 1978 was Adamson Associates. The station architecture is comprised of three levels: street entrance level, an underground concourse level with access to the underground streetcar platform and a 150-metre passageway connecting the Line 1 and Line 2 platforms, and platform level. The main entrance to the station is located on the east side of Spadina Road just north of Bloor Street West. There is a connection to 127 Davenport from the station bus terminal and 510 Spadina in the streetcar terminal downstairs. Connections to blue night 310 Spadina can only be made at street level as it does not serve the subway station overnight.
The secondary automatic entrances are located on the west side of Spadina Road across from the main entrance, the Norman B. Gash House at 85 Spadina Road adjacent to the intersection of Spadina Road and Kendal Avenue, and on the east side of Walmer Avenue north of Bloor Street West. The Walmer Avenue entrance was newly renovated and all entrances directly connect to Line 2 except for the Spadina/Kendal entrance which directly connects to Line 1.
The concourse level is situated below street entrance level and features a streetcar terminal loop and a passageway that leads to the Line 1 Spadina Station platforms. The passageways once featured a moving walkway, however, due to increased costs to maintain and refurbish the walkway, it was removed in 2004. The Spadina/Kendal entrance was formerly a house designed and built by architect Robert Ogilvie for lawyer Norman B. Gash. It was later re-purposed into a subway station entrance due to pressure from the neighbourhood over demolishing the historic building. The station features two large artworks. An enamel mural titled "Morning Glory" by Louis de Niverville is located on street entrance level beside the stairway, and a large quilt titled "Barren Ground Caribou" by Joyce Wieland which features caribou in a tundra landscape is located in the concourse level.
