Hinged master plan

  • contemporary architecture

TPO “Reserv” have designed a new residential district “Ivanovskoe” on the border with Novogorsk city forest. On the territory of 73 ha the architects located 30 low-rise city-blocks, social infrastructure facilities and a spectacular green promenade with a system of ponds.


The site plan has the shape of an irregular polygon, and in a way resembles a butterfly, which ornamentally cut wings "hug" the territory of the hospital spreading toward the forest. The future residential complex is separated from the hospital by Ivanovskaya street. It connects the site with Mishkinskoe highway. Reaching the center of the site, it makes a smooth turn back to the federal highway - here begins an unnamed street which leads to Kurkinskoe highway. Although Ivanovskaya extends toward Pyatnitskoe highway, being a forest clearing at that part of the way. In other words, a road crossing had formed on the territory even before the work on design project was started so it was obvious that public centre of the future district must be located there. The architects made the only correction – oval interchange on the plan. There are a few wetland ponds on the way to the forest, perpendicular to the roadway. Again the landscape suggested the architects a solution: along the ponds which will be cleaned, deepened and connected by a channel, there will be a broad boulevard for foot-walkers. The oval-shaped interchange is surrounded by buildings of the public centre, and on the plan they resemble a horseshoe broken into segments. Behind, from the hospital side, there will engineering infrastructure facilities and tennis courts. Along the boulevard (though with impressive width - 80 meters – it is rather a recreation zone) there will be sport spots as well as small shops and cafes. Each city-block is 100x100m and square on the plan built up 3, 4 and 5storey buildings the perimeter. Though, the blocks on the site border are trapezoid-shaped to unfold houses toward the forest. "We have chosen a square, because rectangular blocks suppose street hierarchy, but our small village has no need in that.", - said Vladimir Plotkin. Thus, the architects created a convenient grid which can be extended in any way in the future, and monotony of the housing development.
