The “Polyana Samotsvetov” residential complex (rus. “Gem Meadow” - translator's note) is a new-type suburban housing project. According to, PANACOM chief architect Arseniy Leonovich this type of dwelling becomes more and more popular - it implies closeness to nature and, at the same time, insignificant distance from the city; a compact territory and specially developed landscape design, that becomes an integral part of the spatial composition of the project.

In short, the new housing type combines both the features of a cottage community as well as of an urban mini-quarter. A 37 acres territory is built up with compact volumes of the dwellings (from four to seven floors). According to Arseniy Leonovich, these sculptural houses with a complex form of the facades remind faces of people and are always differently lit depending on the time of day and the season.

There is a big guest parking lot, the managing company building, and also some boutiques, cafes, housing services and even a small spa-salon at the entry of the complex. These businesses are all packed within a walking distance from each other in the framework of a single master plan.

The residential blocks stand separately but they all have something in common. They are designed for a small number of apartments of different formats: simple studios (55-65 yd2), big two-room (70-90 yd2) and three-room apartments (95-130 yd2). The glass fragments in the walls of every living unit are a conceptual detail. Large balconies and terraces play the role of a buffer zone between the interior and the exterior with the exit into the nature. The ground floors of the residential volumes with a significant part of glazing have the same function. However, this is the “club” space of the house: apart from the reception and the service rooms (the generic feature of urban houses) the interiors are designed as lounge zones where all neighbors, friends and guests can meet.

The cottage theme is easily traced in the façade design. The dominating finishing materials are natural – wood, stone, textured bricks – and the modern composites – ceramic-granite of various textures and Prodema and Trespa façade panels. According to the PANACOM architects, purchasing property in this complex means buying a comfortable out-of-town life for optimal cost. “The expenses, both direct and indirect, are much lower than those for a cottage but you in fact you get more of the “country” lifestyle” – adds Arseniy Leonovich.
