These two buildings standing on the territory of the former Rassvet factory present an example of the architects’ delicate work with the context, form, and, above all, the inner structure of the apartment building that has arguably become a unique one for the modern Moscow. The complex is already known to a certain extent in the professional community. Below we are examining it in detail.

Julia Tarabarina. ​Destroying Stereotypes

The architects of DNK ag approached the task of doing a comfort-class housing project as a super-objective. They were ultimately able to break the frame of “inexpensive housing equals standardized blocks of flats” staying, at the same time, within their budget constraints. Their customized and professional approach to mass housing construction allowed the architects to create a comfortable and human-friendly urban territory.

Julia Tarabarina, . Rurbanism

Working on a real-life project, the architects of DNK ag saw in it a great opportunity to test the principles of compact but at the same time diverse and comfortable construction.
