About Firm:

Moscow architectural studio Atrium was established in 1994 by Vera Butko and Anton Nadtochiy. Primarily they were known as the authors of ultra-contemporary private interiors and houses. But for the last 10 years they have worked a lot on the urban scale. There are 70 preliminary project concepts and planning schemes made for Donstroy company by Atrium, a masterplan for the district in Krasnodar, several educational buildings, interiors of RuArts gallery, showroom Capellini, three offices for Russian search engine Yandex. Two buildings are currently under construction: athletic and educational complex with residential block near the center of Moscow (43 000 sq.m), and multifunctional complex with shopping mall (160 000 sq. m). Bureau is laureate of different Russian architectural and design awards, including two for greenbuilding in 2010.

Everything we ever design is architecture, and it doesnt matter if it is a table, or a highrise. We believe that architecture is an abstract art of form and space. We dont like to talk about literary meanings and artistic gestures. Details are designed in our projects as a part of whole story but not as a décor. We try to avoid stereotypes to make not a sum of corridors and rooms, but to expand it from one to another.

Julia Tarabarina. A School of Our Time

On the eve of the presentation of the new book by ATRIUM, dedicated to the design of schools and other educational facilities, based on the architects considerable experience, as well as expert judgments, we are examining the Quantum STEM school building, constructed according to their project in Astana. Furthermore, this building is planned to be the first one to start a new chain. The architects designed it in full accordance with modern standards but sometimes they did break away from them only to confirm the general development rules. For example, there are two amphitheaters in the atrium, and there is an artificial hill in the yard that is meant to make the flat terrain of the Kazakhstan steppe more eventful.

Alyona Kuznetsova. An Architect in a Metaverse

In this interview, we talked to the participants of the festival of creative industries G8 about why metaverses are our tomorrows everyday routine, and how architects can already influence it today.

Julia Tarabarina. A Ringlet Bridge

The project of a pedestrian bridge, proposed by the architectural company ATRIUM, headed by Vera Butko and Anton Nadtochiy, for the city of Almaty, Kazakhstan, became the winner of the A+A Awards organized by the Architizer portal in the Unbuilt Transportation nomination. The bridge is indeed a stunner: a hanging garden in concrete tubs of columns, suspended over a city highway, is fitted with ringlets of wooden ramps, which in the bridges key point form an element of national ornament.

Julia Tarabarina. Sergey Nadtochiy: In our research, we formulate which qualities and features modern educational spaces must have, and, even more importantly, how they must be created

Recently, AB ATRIUM announced its all-but-complete research project dedicated to formats of designing modern educational spaces. In this article, we are speaking to the leader of the project Sergey Nadtochiy about the goals and specifics of the future book, which is going to have about 300 pages in it.

Julia Tarabarina. ​The Spiral Approach

The school building in the city of Nur-Sultan, designed by Vera Budko and Anton Nadtochiy from beginning to end from concept to working documentation became the embodiment of the architects method for creating a modern educational environment, which the ATRIUM architects have been developing for years. Its fundamentals include creating an inspiring environment that motivates you to create. This is why the new school received a shape of an ornamental golden spiral that symbolizes ascension to knowledge; on the inside, the building is a compound and multifunctional city within a city with multilevel atriums, amphitheaters, and varying routes.
