large-scale project of all was developed for the city of
On either side (left and right) the historical building will be flanked with new "wings" - two groups of buildings stretched along the railway lines. In these buildings, there will be shops, restaurants, Internet cafes, and leisure and service institutions that the architects propose to disperse over several low-rise volumes rather than try to squeeze them into one bulky building. Spaced out with picturesque pedestrian passways, these pavilions will form a kind of "shopping quarters" with a comfortable human-friendly medium. All the shops and cafes will be placed on one single stlylobate stretching from the landside area down to the passenger platforms. The architects are deliberately leveling off the upper marks of the stlylobate with the platforms - this will give them the opportunity to make enough parking places in the basement. The passenger platforms, in turn, will be equipped with sun and rain-protecting awnings that will also visually "pull" the various volumes together into one uniform composition.
The building of Lazarevskoe railway station, on the other side, is not an architectural monument but the architects still render homage to its architecture and its charm. Deciding to keep the building virtually intact, the architects based the renovation project of Lazarevskoe train station on the idea of an old picture set in a new frame. The structure of the new train station facility looks indeed a lot like a frame: like in the previous case, two buildings are situated on the sides of the historical building, linked to one another with one common roof that hangs like an awning above the old station and part of the landside area.
