Within the bounds of high density

  • contemporary architecture

Nearby Smolenskya metro the architects of ADM bureau designed a residential complex with total space of 60000 sq m. But despite this impressive number and extreme narrowness of the site, the architects made a comfortable environment for all future dwellers: riverfront, pedestrian outdoors, barbecue on a roof.

Information:

The developer started the project a number of times, and ADM is not the first architectural bureau they addressed to. So, they inherited already accepted pre-project concept with approved density index for the site. 61000 sq m was a most serious challenge, they were supposed to be fit into a small sloped site. The total difference in heights is 17 meters. The idea to compact all the sq m into a single volume seemed questionable from the very start, so there are a few volumes on the project. The two not large volumes, a rectangular and round front the 2d Truzhenikov pereulok and the main, -shaped volume is unfolded towards the quay. ϔ is formed by numerous volumes different in height, color and finishing texture. There are three terraces in the inner yard, cascading down to Moskva-reka. Architecture of the complex bases on the contrast of dark and light facades, transparent and mirror glass, composite and wood paneling. It cascading arrangement on quite a sharp slope intensifies the impression of alive, moving, towering surfaces. The inner yard is divided into three wide terraces for foot-walkers only. In order to release this territory from cars, the architects placed parking lot and three-level route under the ground.
