Brigantine spreads sails

  • contemporary architecture

In May Studio-44 got a new office, a 3 storey building in Manezhny pereulok, with a built-up 2 level mansard. It is significant for its interior with bare interior rafter system of glued wood. Critics have already compared it to an inverted Viking boat. The project received the Bronze diploma at Zodchestvo-2009 festival.

Information:

Manezhy pereulok joins Preobrazhenskaya Square, the famous Spaso-Preobrazhensky Cathedral of Vasily Stasov, Vosstaniya street. The building number 3 is just a hundred meters away from the empire cathedral. This made the impact on exterior of the built-up structure. First the architects had to stay within the limits in heights of the district, and give honor to the magnificent neighbor. Smooth curved outline suffices for this purpose, it visually conceals height of the built-up construction (6,5 m) and decently resonates with the outline of the cathedral. The authors of the project worked for saving the two-leveled space of the mansard uniform. It is such from outside: a large illuminator is obviously designed for the two levels and the small square widows referring to Ronchamp chapel by Le Corbusier look decorative. In the very end of the upper level the architects had to add the two offices, they designed them using just glass partitions in order to mask the effect of the mentioned square gaps.
