Ground Folds

Vladimir Plotkin designed a unique sculpture-building for one of the passages connecting Sretenka and Trubnaya streets. The apartment complex consists of two sections with different heights, wrapped in folded skin of glass and travertine.

Information:

Location of the complex left little choice to Vladimir Plotkin and his team the complex would be elite, therefore with small number of apartments with large floor areas, with a fitness club and parking lot, and have a remarkable appearance. The construction site has a shape of an irregular rectangle stretched from the south to the north, from Bolshoi Suhorevsky passage deep to the city-block, where three left borders of the territory are surrounded by small gardens. The nearest neighbor along the frontage line is the 5 storey office building on the west side and it dictates the new building a relatively small scale according to the rules of modern in Moscow centre. From the other, eastern side, there is a small garden "attached" to the developing complex - under there will be an underground parking. If Vladimir Plotkin would position the building strictly following the site configuration, there would appear a skewed parallelepiped directed from the southeast to the northwest. This solution guaranteed interesting facades, but the intricate and therefore inconvenient apartment layouts. So the building got more complicated three-part planning, where the two trapezoids of the residential sections are joined, as if glued together, by a narrow strip. Sections vary in heights: the 6-story one faces the passage, the 8 storey sections is placed deep within the area. Though the building consists of a single volume, visually it seems to be two-parted: sections are separated by narrow deep niches (one of them, from the eastern small garden has the main entrance), and the 8 storey volume is partly hanging over the street section by the console.
