AT THE START OF THE CONSTRUCTION SEASON Even the longest road starts with the first step. In March 1995, when Mosbuild staged its inaugural exhibition, the prospect of the twentieth season seemed a long way off. And now we are celebrating 20 years! In our work, we actively use the universal advice of modern living – to move more, resulting in the formation of a positive outlook on life, the development of mental agility and muscle mass. Our positive attitude to life comes across in our support and optimism with regard to Russia's construction industry, and stepping up the level during the next exhibition season indicates the development of mental agility. We've also scored on muscle mass – we are now rated in the TOP 5 of the world's construction events and are Europe's largest annual international consitruction and interior design exhibition. However, the main achievement of our focused and determined progression over these past 20 years is the fact that we have succeeded in creating a unique, consolidated business space, conducive to the Russian construction industry's innovative transition to a modern international level. To reinforce the above, we have put together a special issue of the MosBuild Magazine, combining all the latest construction and interior design innovations and latest products, new collections, innovative designs and new state-ot-the-art technology and equipment which can all be viewed for the first time only at MosBuild 2014. Given the significance of the forthcoming exhibition event, this special issue of the magazine gives an insight into all the exhibition news, events and guests. We have prepared general articles on the leading architects and designers who will be staging workshops in the specially-allocated area of the MosBuild School, snipets about the MADA jury members - the international competition for young architects and students and various facts about unique architectural buildings and interiors. As a public information resource, the magazine will help you to select routes and compile a plan of which stands, workshops, seminars and conferences you intend to visit – and most importantly, prepare you to visit and actively participate in the greatest event of the construction season – the 20th anniversary MosBuild exhibition.

Glass is an amazing material, very modern, allowing you to achieve the effect you want both inside and out. If you are using modern technology, which is constantly evolving year on year, much is possible.



ne of Moscow's first large-scale glass designs – the Unikombank office – was built back in the 1990s, launching architect Dmitry Pshenichnikov's creative developmental path. Today, few can compare with him in terms of genre and stylistic diversity: the architect works on the designs of public institutions, private homes and major business centres. He also is involved in the reconstruction of historic buildings and is the designer of a number of churches and cathedrals. The architect explains this diversity hrough traditions and his own passion for development: 'In the 18th and 19th centuries, the architect did everything – from the foundations to the door handles and the plume on the chandelier. Rendering the detail of a lamp, door, a stained-glass window or some wrought-metal detail – is this not fascinating? I think that the most awful thing for an architect is to be stuck working on one thing'. The more modern the design, the more innovative the construction materials used to complete the project. Glass tower structures, for the offices of large corporations, account for a large proportion of the projects the architects and design studio 'Dmitry Pshenichnikov and Partners' work on. Dmitry Pshenichnikov is the winner of the RF state prize for architecture, the winner of the Russian Academy of Artists Silver Medal and the winner of the ARX AWARDS prize for the 'Best transport infrastructure facility' category, for the Sheremetevo 3 airport compex. This design (Terminal D) also won the first Russian 'Glass in architecture' competition. The design of the Sheremetevo complex is one of the most large-scale and significant projects both for 'Dmitry Pshenichnikov and Partners' and for the capital's air transport connections. Terminal D is being referred to as the country's front gates. The design is envisaged on two levels – the upper level is for departures and the lower level is for arrivals. When fully up and running,

the levels are parts of a single visual composition. To construct the 180,000 sq. m. terminal buiding, 50 thousand sq. m . of glass was required and the superprecision fitting of all the parts and components for this was paramount. The windows are cut from special profile AGC Glass, with a triangular cross-section and complex colour scheme. Special support racks and crossbars were designed for the external glazing. The roof and canopy covering and the external cladding panels were mounted and assembled using Kalzip metal sheeting. All types of glass were used in the airport design as a construction and building material. The construction of Sheremetevo-3 involved many different types of glass: matt, coloured, laminated and low-emission glass, and glass with a complex colour range. In addition to the very basic functions, the glass also provides soundproofing for the airport complex. 'Working on the airport Sheremetevo-3, we used glass as one of the main materials. The very concept of the airport's external appearance suggested a lightness, grace and openness. As for the image, we hit upon one of the symbols associated with Russia: ballet, Tchaikovsky, Swan Lake, a swan...the association with the bird and the swan image was convincing.'

Dmitry Pshenichnikov's workshop on 'The multipurpose applications of glass in architecture' will be held as part of the MosBuild School interactive study area, 1 April 2014 at the VVC, pavilion 75, hall A




odern Russian architecture is still discovering its face, its identity. So now you can observe very different trends and styles in it – it is both an imitation of a bygone era and an attempt to instill the global mainstream on Russian soil, and sometimes it is just the architect's original design. That is why I think it is more more notable and interesting, as it is charged with the living energy of its creator'. The main focus of our studio in recent years has been connected with the search for an architectural identity – both our own and across the country. Its character has slowly started to emerge – something bright and original, Russian-style reckless and something that does not completely fit in with the canons of modernist architecture. Each design is a search for a clear image, a sign that will hold its space and radiate in its own energy. From a park pavilion to an airport terminal – everywhere we try to attain a clean, easy-togauge design that is full of positive energy. My brother and I, also an architect, organised an exhibition under the title 'The Russian Identity', in which we tried to present a collective image of contemporary Russian architecture. To do this, we selected 20 of the most striking buildings and connected each of them with one of the aspects of the Russian character. The final result was an interesting collection of 'architectural types', embodying various concepts such as 'maybe', 'mockery', 'irresistability' and 'cosmism' etc. 'The architecture 'with a human face' should embody its creator's energy and release it into the surrounding space. For me – it's all lively, unscripted interaction with the building's visitors and, then ideally, gradually transforming their self-conciousness. Therefore, I would like to hope that Russian architecture will develop its arsenal of technology as quickly as possible and experience the global construction industry, and in doing so, obtain its 'identity', its unique face, alive and humane'

Andrey Asadov's workshop, 'In the search for an identity' will take place as part of the MosBuild School, on 2 April 2014 at VVC, pavilion 75, hall A

As far as the practical implementation of my designs was concerned, I first encountered this abroad. I so very much wanted to finally build something that as soon as I arrived in Ireland, I asked to be taken to a brick factory. They showed me 40 types of bricks…


ergey Estrin's architects practice was launched in April 2002. A passion for work and constantly searching soon allowed the architects practice to occupy the leading position in corporate design and to take up their rightful place amongst the other market players at the highest level. With over 25 years' experience as an architect, Sergey Estrin is not only a prominent figure in the architecture industry, but also in the real estate market. He participates in each of his company's projects and is the instigator of the ideas of most of them. The fundamental principle of an architect's practice is that each design, just like people, should have its own character which is reflected in every detail, so careful study is subject not only to the very concept of the building but also to the materials used in its construction. 'Creating an architectural design always involves a number of fairly strict limits. More than one brilliant project idea has been shattered when confronted with the realities of its technical implementation'. Sergey Estrin will talk about how to avoid the pitfalls and source solutions to bring about non-trivial ideas during the workshop‌

Sergey Estrin's workshop, 'An ordinary miracle, or the use of simple materials for non-conventional design solutions' will take place as part of the interactive learning platform of the MosBuild School, on 3 April 2014 at the ExpoCentre Exhibition Complex, pavilion 8


The interior of the company's head office features transparent partitions, which the architect has placed at different angles, fracturing the view of the corridor. To make them mre tangible, part of the transparent walls have been finished with a broken-glass effect.


The original intention for the design of the penthouse's load-bearing wall was to finish the wall using rusty iron, but sourcing a sufficient amount of this material proved to be impossible, so plywood covered in a plastic-mass coating (plaster-base) was used instead of iron, and then coated in copper leaf. The copper was left in outside to oxidise it and then coated with a matt varnish.


The interiors of the Sretensky Monastry. Using corian white plating and waves over a smooth surface background, Sergey Estrin not only softened the space's original geometry but also created a modern interpretation of the typical architectural elements and features of the Russian church, such as arches and vaults. Columns dressed in 'solid' wood and an 'extended' ceiling and walls fit to the existing frame like a new skin.



A special issue of the magazine contains useful and upto-date information on the products, technical designs and equipment as well as the latest product offers in the construction industry from those companies participating in the construction and interior design exhibition MosBuild 2014.

The company 'Realit' has launched a new product – an aluminium profile for a suspended ceiling system. The aluminium profile's strength and durability ensure that the curtains (fabric or film) will remain securely attached for long periods to the system's base.

'ChMP–Profnastil' produces the 'Monterray' and 'Spanish dune' metal roof tiles using high-technology equipment from Finland. The roller method of painting ensures that the coating is applied evenly and that the tiles can withstand UV light and corrosion. The capillary groove and the additional incision on the tile's left side prevent moisture from accumulating under the roof.

THE SYMBIOSIS OF CRYSTAL TRANSPARENCY AND LIGHT Creating modern high-tech interiors is the main specialism and passion of the well-known architect and designer Danny Venle. Danny's work is notable for its unique innovative design solutions and the latest technical products. Recently, the designer has been incresingly producing glass designs. In his words, the technical properties of this material somewhat restrict the designer's freedom, but 'it is basically these restrictions that stir the imagination and make the process of designing both interesting and thrilling'.

The product Glassiled was developed and launched following the designer's joint efforts with the staff at the 'AGC Glass Europe Research and Development Centre’, which features glass with built-in LEDs. The LEDs were laid on the specially-coated glass, then covered with PVC which was then coated with an outer glass layer. The LEDs can be laid in any order: it all depends on the designer's creativity and the purpose of the design. This may be a sign, company logo or any artistic or graphic design – the flights of fancy are not at all restricted. The LEDs can be multi-coloured and RGB, meaning that theu can change colour and brightness depending on their intended use. In daylight, the multi-layered Glassiled glass appears transparent and allows in sunlight, then at night, the glass starts to play with all the colours of the rainbow. Glassiled glass can also be used in architectural designs – on building facades and in interior design – to create partitions, doors, stair railings as well as other interior designs. Any design made using Glassiled – whether it is a building facade or a shelf in a shop – will always be a unique design solution, which will attract attention and catch the imagination.

odern cities are ever more aware of the significance of using built-up areas rationally. The route of intensive development makes the reconstruction of run-down buildings an important process for the architecture of the city as a whole.When there are problems – there are experts to solve them. Sergey Trukhanov, General Director of the T+T Architects bureau and Aleksandr Brovkin, architectural director and their team know how to formulate a new architectural shape for the building within the existing structure. T+T Architects are proud to include a whole number of complex projects that turned obsolete industrial buildings into modern social complexes. The best example of this is 'Schmidt’s Mill' in Saratov. 'Schmidt’s Mill' is an industrial complex 3,35 hectares in size, which houses a whole range of historical architectural buildings such as a steam mill, auxiliary buildings and a boiler room. The pseudo-Gothic facade has been well preserved with elements of the old Russian style, which was characteristic of the late 19th century eclectic style. The aim of the reconstruction was to conserve all the historic areas.

Incision: Members of the project: A. Brovkin, N. Makarov, P. Voevodina, S. Trukhanov, A. Fadeev, V.Kupriyanov, M. Sussinger.

Today’s Saratov suffers from an acute lack of public spaces, which the transformation of the Mill into a functionally zone open to the public will go some way in compensating. This will include offices, hotels, apartments and a concert hall. T+T Architects took a model of the historic European town with narrow streets, cosy cafes, pedestrian zones and bright architectural buildings as a basis that were worth becoming symbols of the city. The single architectural tone of the space will be from two base materials: aged bricks and light-toned natural stone.

A master class from the General Director of T+T Architects S.S. Trukhanova and leader of the architectural team A. S. Brovkin on the theme 'Recycling buildings and space' will be held as part of MosBuild School 2nd April 2014 in 'ExpoCentre' in Moscow.



Architectural HEIGHTS

Asia's architecture 'outgrew' the low pagodas long ago and made a beeline for the sky, often surpassing the American skyscrapers. The most interesting architectural and design innovations are all located in the skyscraper that houses one of the Four Seasons' chain of hotels in Guangzhou.






Guangzhou International Finance Center (Guangzhou, China) One of the 15 tallest buildings in the world.


The hotel occupies the upper section of the 103-storey skyscraper building, the International Finance Centre, built to a design by Wilkinson Eyre Architects. The modern glass tower is 437.5m high and is constructed in the shape of a huge triangle, which could easily house the Statue of Liberty. From the resulting atrium a view opens up of the skyscraper's multiple floors, stretching upwards. An especially grand spectacle is in store for visitors to the building after dark, when the zigzag lines of the galleries are illuminated with futuristic lighting. The design tapers upwards in such a way that in addition to the building's graceful shape, the design also contributes to reducing the force

The interior achieves its completeness with a series of carefully selected pictures, prints and sculptures by contemporary artists from various countries. In the hotel lobby on the first floor, people's attention is drawn to the aluminium panels with a perforated pattern, that describe winter and autumn; similar designs on the 70th floor depict spring and summer – so the designers simply used the theme of the 'four seasons' to the best effect.

of the wind on the skyscraper's upper floors. The skyscraper is crowned with a glass and metal dome. Glass walls, overlooking both the city and the skyscraper's central atrium, are an important architectural feature. A special venture was made on the panoramas from the 100th and 99th floors, housing restaurants and bars that have already gone down in history as the highest bars in the world. The hotel features a SPA area, a fitness centre and an infinity pool that blends with the sky, the central feature of which is a panoramic view of the city and Guangzhou's Pearl River. The interior of the Four Seasons in Guangzhou was designed by the hotel interior design experts, the company Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA). The architects managed to combine classic luxury with a high-tect futuristic skyscraper design. One of the design features in the hotel lobby on the 70th floor is the criss-cross flights of the spiral staircase and a sculpture that blends in with it from the Australian Matthew Harding.

Laconic luxurious room interiors complement the paintings, drapery fabrics and decor featuring traditional Chinese motifs. In the hotel, windows to the floor feature in the bedrooms and bathrooms of each room, meaning that the hotel building is flooded with as much natural light as possible and visually seems to expand. The bed design was developed specially for the Four Seasons. Echoing contemporary design trends, the hotel's bathrooms have a marble finish. High-end bathroom brand names were selected to match the style of each room.



The Four Seasons in Guangzhou is now the latest word in architecture and design amongst the hotels in Asia and in 2011, the hotel was awarded the best high building in Asia and in 2012 the hotel received the prestigious Lubetkin Prize. The skyscraper's contemporary interiors, engineering and technical design have created new heights, for both for China's architecture and the international Four Seasons brand.

Mark Does a designer need their own style? Or is the designer's professionalism their ability to work in any style, perfectly adapating to the client's taste and not exerting their designer individuality? Diana Balashova, the acknowledged master of interior decor and design responds to these questions for MosBuild Magazine.


РУБРИКА | РАЗДЕЛ I think that these big designers are always recognisable by their work. They have tried and tested approaches, favourite materials and a skill set which they use to create amazing interiors. I am a fan pf Kelly Whistler, her interiors are always exuberant , bold and and instantly recognisable. And always different. There is always an active floor, alot of gold and the distinctive graphic pattern. I love Alverto Pinto: he creates both Eastern interior designs and contemporary and classical palaces – but anyway, it is still obvious that it is the great Alberto Pinti. During the winter holidays I stayed in a beautiful hotel – just one look at the entrance and I knew instantly that it was the work of the designer Jacques Garcia. The individuality of these designers and their personal style brings their interior designs out of the 'beautiful and convenient' and into the art world, they are classical interior designs – a role model. Personal style becomes a designer's trademark, meaning that a client will automatically have an idea as to what to expect from a certain designer. Style helps to select the designer for your perspective interior design. By referring to a design from a well-known designer, the client will already understand the type of stylistic tone that will be created in their home. The main thing to consider when selecting an interior designer is to find a designer whose taste and style please the client. Individual style does in no way mean that the designer creates a design blueprint. However well-known the designer, each of their designs is intended for a specfic space and a specific person for a particular way of life and their social status. Here a complete analogy with clothes can be made – a suit ordered from Paul Smith, will be made up to Paul Smith patterns, but to the client's standards. The suit's fabric will be suitable for those situations for which the suit is intended, but the suit's lining will certainly carry the brand name. Like a medal, there are always two sides to a design project: the designer and the client. Their mutual sense of understanding and committment to a common final result will be a guarantee that this medal-design will be gold.

Diana Balashova's workshop 'The secret of a successful design project' will be held on 3 April 2014 in the ExpoCentre as part of the MosBuild School.




Home Fashion


At MosBuild, we can expect the first ever showing of the wallpaper collections from 'Rosstyle' – the current collection from Valentin Yudashkin. How did this idea come about and how did it become reality – the editor of MosBuild magazine found out in an exclusive interview with the designer himself. - In fact, it is all not so unexpected. Several years ago, companies traditionally associated with fashion, clothing and accessories started to emerge onto the home goods and interior design market. It all perhaps began with the mass market: Zara, Esprit and so on. Then more renowned fashion houses started to show an interest in this market and we now know the collections of Versace, Valentino and Roberto Cavalli... They are all different and all recognisable, because the designers create the collections based on the usual logos and patented designs, such as Cavalli's use of wild African animals, for example. The fashion world is familiar with the House of VALENTIN YUDASHKIN and naturally expects fabric collections from you, so why wallpaper? - My collection of items for the home came out some time ago: furniture, textiles and crockery. It was all intended for the elite, affluent consumer. A different type


of product was needed to reach out to the mass buyer. Marketing experts surprised me by saying that Russia is the largest wallpaper market in the world. A huge amount of wallpaper is sold here, as in Russia, wallpaper is used to traditionally decorate the walls. Two years ago, the Roberto Cavalli Home collection appeared on the market here, which sold extremely successfully, despite its original designs. We hope that our designs will be more universal and versatile. Indeed, a classic damask and leopard skin detail wall covering demand completely different interior design solutions. But your collections are always de-luxe. Do you think that the Russian consumer is ready for haute-couture wallpaper? - I'm confident they are. Although, I would not say that our collection is haute-couture as it is intended for the mass consumer market, but naturally, it will be significantly more expensive than wallpaper no name. I am confident that we have the right partners in this project. How did you select your partners for this market which is new for you, or are you entering this new market alone? - It would be madness, we know everything about fashion, about the latest trends, the way various dominant colours reoccur, but wallpaper is completely unchartered territory for us and we started to source partners for the project. 'Rosstyle' is the clear leader in


this market. They are involved in designing themselves and adapt to the demand of designs from studios abroad. From the very beginning it was a joint project and from the project's very first steps, we understood that we were moving in the right direction. They also advised the manufacturer, saying what would make the collection a success and who can fulfil even the most complex design. Your partner is equipped with a unique degree of knowledge and expertise – Rosstyle has been in this market for 18 years already. Which of the Russian or international manufacturers recommended Rosstyle? - The law maker in the wallpaper world is Italy, which is understandable in terms of design , which is crucial for wallpaper, as wallpaper is a key defining component in a room's end design. However, it transpired that the most technically-advanced factories capable of producing the densest, heaviest wallpaper are also based in Italy. The wallpaper market even has this term 'Italian vinyl'. Rosstyle recommended the Emiliana Parati plant. They secured the tender to manufacture the wallpaper range for Cavalli and that said it all. We were confident in the quality and we are confident that they will produce the required goods on time. The plant is fitted out with the latest modern English and Italian equipment, the raw materials come from Belgium and Germany and the technology for producing the PVC paste is English. Protecting the environment has been a subject of


great discussion and debate in recent years. How safe is the use of PVC in residential housing? What information did the experts provide on this? - Germany and the state of California in the USA have the most stringent requirements with regard to the environmental friendliness of decorative materials. Emiliana Parati wallpaper is sold in both places. The materials for the wallpaper paste in Europe are produced by three or four international companies, for example, ExxonMobil – their products undergo endurance testing. European wallpaper brands are regulated by so many EU controls and standards and those standards of the individual countries within the EU, that there is no need to be concerned about their total safety. How did the fashion aspect of the project develop? - Yes, you used the word 'fashion' completely correctly in the wallpaper context: there is also fashion in wallpaper, wallpaper trends also change and new colours and materials appear. The Valentin Yudashkin Home Fashion collection will not just be static, it will live up to the current demands of wallpaper fashion, which often originates from the textiles in Italy, albeit with a delay. A great professional expert will assist us with this – the creative director at Emiliana Parati, Egidio Freddi. We both understand each other and we speak the same language. We will consult with Rosstyle about the market's readiness for a particular trend. I am confident we are doing everything correctly.

What are the main features of your designs? - Our designs are calm, classic themes, damasks, flowers and so on. Each design will bear an imprinted logo in the latin letters VY and the words Valentin Yudashkin in full. The designs are beautiful and recognisable. On the wall, the designs will look exceptionally refined, imitiating painting and patina by hand. Luxury decorative materials – these are the product of your design studio. What else are you planning to design for the home? - The wallpaper collection, of course, has just been launched. We are considering developing a co-ordinated textiles collection this autumn and we may also design a ceramic tile collection and items such as lighting fixtures to accompany this. I think that we've already found a partner capable of bringing our designs onto the decorating materials market. They are Rosstyle – the largest distributer of decorating materials in the CIS. They will help us to source the right manufacturers for all our trade groups. We intend to present our wallpaper collection at the MosBuild exhibition on the Rosstyle company stand. We think that this will be an ideal location to present a project such as this.

ALL LIVING THINGS REACH OUT TO THE LIGHT Sergey Siziy, a designer at the company Philips Light and a teacher at the design-school School.Interior.Pro is currently the leading lighting design specialist in Russia. His creative designs have brought the light to the shops 'M-Video' and the office of the company TP-Visionin Moscow. The TP-Vision lighting design won the 'Russian Lighting Design' competition in 2013.


” T

We decided to move away from using boring and old-fashioned uniform lighting systems and took a gamble on effective accent lighting.

he luxury lighting design solution gave the TP-Vision office a sense of individuality, an effective external appearance and helped to create a comfortable work space. Lighting design techniques have divided the building space into practical zones and areas for both individual and group work, meetings, guest receptions and relaxation – each part of the space has its own lighting concept. The 'face' of the office is the reception area, which is highlighted by contrasting lighting tones. The lit-up company logo on a dark background stands out really well. The designer has visually enhanced the waiting area by highlighting individual elements of the interior. The intelligent setup of lighting accents on the small table, on the switches and on the documents box, creates a soft play between light and shadow, helping you to feel comfortable. The cafe and kitchen areas opposite, however, are glowing with energy. Here three types of lighting are used: local lighting – for the table and bar, effective functional lighting for the area where food is prepared and decorative lighting to bring out the kitchen units by changing the colour of their outer edge. The lighting in the narrow corridor 'enhances' the space, by using a diagonal suspended lamp arrangement and decorative lighted wall niches. The niche lighting changes depending on the time of day, transforming the atmosphere from a dynamic, working environment in

the mornings to a calm, soothing one in the evenings. In the Open Space area, which houses most of the staff's work stations, Sergey Siziy has used soft, even lighting. Energy-efficient advanced optic lighting was used in the design: they scatter the light and eliminate any glare from the computer monitors. TP-Vision's staff's eyes have been protected and there are also suspended lighting lamps with mixed light – direct and reflected. The design of the meeting rooms allows for different types of lighting scenarios, creating the right type of atmosphere. Bright, uniform lighting is available here for serious meetings involving a greater number of people and muted lighting, centred over the table is an option for informal, private meetings. The use of the lighting devices in this design project has had a considerable influence on the perception of the interior. Lighting design is currently one of the simplest and most effective methods of conveying the designer's design concept to the audience – everything really does reach out towards the light. Sergey Siziy's workshop 'New trends in lighting design for interiors with the arrival of LED technology' will take place as part of the MosBuild School on 3 April 2014 at Moscow's ExpoCentre.




Modern LED production and manufacture is gaining pace and is increasing its scale. Many companies can now offer an extensive range of products, which have successfully found an unoccupied niche in the market.

Unlimited possibilities The architects from the Austrian architects and design studio Pos architekten have 25 years expertise in environmentally sustainable architecture. The designs they have completed include: Schiestlhaus – a building (passive house) in extreme conditions at a height of 2,000 metres; ENERGYbase - an office building (passive house) with renewable energy sources and a media centre design based on recycled materials.


ritz Ettl, a consultant with the EBRD on environmentally sustainable costruction projects , is POS architekten' s senior architect. For many years, Fritz Ettl and his coleagues have carried out research, developing, testing and then implementing innovative technology to create environmentally friendly and energy-efficient architecture. All the architects at POS architekten maintain that the integration of these designs into actual housing and office building projects is an extremely important achievement and their professional duty. In their opinion, one hunderd years ago, architects worked mainly with construction engineers and, whereas today, given the environmental, social and economic standards and requirements in the construction industry, the participation of a large staff of consultants and experts in each of these areas is needed to turn out durable, sustainable and beautiful architectural designs. One of Europe's most ambitious building projects is

ENERGYbase, in Vienna. The 7500 m² office building is considered to be a unique example of the possible combination of sustainable architecture and passive house technology, which takes into account not only energy efficiency, but also renewable sources of energy and the comfort of living.

HISTORIC HIGHS FOR CONSTRUCTION OF RESIDENTIAL HOUSING IN RUSSIA DURING 2013 In recent years the construction of residential housing has been one of the fastest-growing segments in the construction market, as witness by the high rates of residential houses being put into operation. In 2012-2013, the rising trend in prices in the primary real estate market in 74 regions of Russia, including Moscow and Moscow region, St. Petersburg, Omsk region, Altai region and others is for growth. In turn this facilitated an increase in the total volume of housing construction. By the end of 2013 organizations of all forms of property in the territory of Russia enacted 912.1 thousand apartments with a total area of 69.4 million square meters., a 5.5% increase on 2012. Among entities in the Russian Federation in 2013, the largest volumes of housing construction are carried out in the Moscow Region, Krasnodar, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Tatarstan, Bashkortostan, and the Tyumen and Rostov Regions. The combined activities in these regions

accounted for just under half the total area of housing built in Russia in 2013. According to Ivan Fedyakov, CEO INFOLine: 'The low levels of the provision of specific living space per person is one of the main reasons for the growth in the rate of housing construction. By the end of 2012 the total area of residential premises, based on an average for a Russian citizen, was 23.4 m². In comparison with a number of European countries this figure reaches 60-70 m² per person.' Another significant reason can be the poor quality of the existing housing stock in the country. According to the State Statistics Committee at the beginning of 2013 the total area of dilapidated housing was 100.1 million m ². Against a background of slowing income growth for the population mortgage lending has ever greater influence on the housing market. According to the Agency for Housing Mortgage Lending (HMLA), the share of mortgage loans for the purchase of new

housing is up to 40% of the total market volume. In 2013 more than 25% of real estate transactions in 2013 were encumbered by mortgages, almost 5% up on 2012. The level of mortgage lending is still very low compared to developed countries, where up to 90% of transactions are completed with the use of a mortgage, which says a lot about their inaccessibility, primarily due to their high interest rates, for the vast majority of Russians. Unless it solves this problem the construction market risks facing a 'glut' on the market and a sharp downturn in the volume of new construction,' - Ivan Fedyakov, CEO INFOLine. Considering the dynamics of the commissioning of residential homes, it may be noted that from 2003 to 2008 the volume of housing construction increased by 176%. In 2009 and 2010 there was a reduction of input into the total living space compared to the previous year, and from 2011 again the trend of growth in housing construction was noted until it

BUSINESS PROGRAMME | STATISTICS reached record levels in 2013. Along with the increased growth rate of housing construction indicators of retail and wholesaleretail sales of construction and finishing materials (the DIY segment ) increased. According to analysts from INFOLine, presented at the annual business forum 'The Problems and Prospects for Development of the Market of Construction and Finishing materials and DIY Goods', held in the framework of the exhibition MosBuild, sales in 2013 expected to

exceed 1 trillion rubles. According to preliminary estimates, we can say that the predictions were confirmed.Of the total volume of commissioned housing only 15% were concentrated in Moscow and St. Petersburg. Moreover, if the market of construction and finishing materials in central Russia has been actively growing and not for the first year, so the regional development of leading manufacturers and retailers in the DIY & Household segment is gaining momentum.

In 2014-2015, the market will face new challenges. The high debt load of Russians will take its toll by reducing consumer purchasing power and by reducing the number of transactions in the real estate market, entailing a slowdown of the market of construction and finishing materials. 'Building effective relationships in the supply chain to the consumer requires the close attention of both suppliers and DIY chains. 'Adapt to Survive, ' CEO' INFOLine 'Ivan Fedyakov.

THE MAIN DEVELOPMENT TRENDS FOR THE DIY MARKET IN 2013 By the end of 2013 the growth in retail trade turnover growth amounted to 3.9% and reached to 22 trillion rubles. In this respect 1

Russia is a leader among European countries. Analysts had forecast an increase in the volume of retail and wholesale-retail sales in the DIY segment in 2013 to be above $ 1 trillion rubles, and according to preliminary estimates, these figures were confirmed. Thus the development of DIY retail comes amid increased competition and changes in the consumer preferences of Russians. The DIY market largely supports housing construction activity.


Last year apartments of 69.4 m², increase in

more than 912,000 with a total area which continued the the rate of housing


construction over the last 3 years. The situation with the construction of new residential buildings in Russia has been a central topic of discussion at the forum 'The Problems and Prospects for Development of the Market of Construction and Finishing materials and DIY Goods', in 2013. As noted in his welcoming speech, Secretary General of the European Federation of FeDIYMa Ralph Ramid in Russia about 55% of homes are in need of major repairs,

and 6% are uninhabitable. The amount of new housing brought into operation is not enough to solve the problem of complete 3

renovation of the 'old ' housing. This gives additional impetus to the development of the Russian DIY market. A major shift occurred in Russian consumer behaviors. In his report at the DIY forum CEO INFOLine Ivan Fedyakov noted that the repair and improvement of living conditions is an investment priority for Russians. According to the results of opinion polls for 20% of Russian citizens their consumption plans are associated with the renovation of

the apartment. Leadership in the industry as previously is still maintained by hold major international players: Leroy Merlin, OBI and Castorama, which continue to invest actively on the territory of Russia. Today we can say that according to 2013 results for the growth in retail space by just these three ranking leaders of the rating INFOLine 'DIY Retail Russia TOP' amounted to almost 100 thousand square meters. Over the past year the international chain 'Leroy Merlin' has increased its retail space by more than 60 thousand m². by opening 6 hypermarket stores. The first shops appeared in Kazan, Volgograd, Tyumen, Ryazan, Tver and Noginsk. Thereby the company has 28 stores in 16 Russian cities. Alexander Keramidas, the chain’s Director Marketing, speaking at the forum 'The Problems and 4

Castorama opened a hypermarket in Orenburg with a total sales area of 9,700 m². Alexey Iovlev, Member of the Board of Directors of the 'Metrics' chain speaking at the DIY forum in 2013, indicated the company's plans to have more than 99 stores. In May of the same year in Yelabuga the chain’s 100th store opened. However, the situation on the market of construction and finishing materials is multidirectional. One of the leaders of the rating INFOLine 'DIY Retail Russia TOP' trading network 'K-Routh' in 2013 indicated a decline in financial results and a reduction in investment activity. At year-end the 'K-Routh' chain closed 2 hypermarkets in St. Petersburg and one opened in the Moscow region, so the increase in retail space in the chain was only 1,000 m². Among DIY-retailers who have 5

entrance of the largest DIY retailers onto the regional market of Russia, by eliminating the strong fragmentation, are changing the development paradigm for DIY retail in general. As noted in his speech at the DIY Forum Rinat Mukhametvaleev,General Director Trust SKM, European manufacturers are looking with great interest to Russia in terms of investment zones. Therefore, the amount of direct supply from the commercial chains will only increase. Detailed results of 2013 will be announced by experts and representatives of the major players in the DIY market on 2nd April 2014 at the Mosbuild exhibition forum 'The Problems and Prospects for Development of the Market of Construction and Finishing materials and DIY Goods.' The analytical agency INFOLine will present the most relevant figures of the market on the basis of their latest research results and rankings DIY Retail Russia TOP for 2013, drawn up with the organizers of the exhibition MosBuild.

Prospects for Development of the Market of Construction and Finishing materials and DIY Goods' noted that the company's focus turned to the end consumer, and the main elements of this strategy are the lowest product price and low margins. The volume of new retail space for the OBI chain at the end of 2013 amounted to just over 20 thousand m². New hypermarkets were opened in Saratov and Ryazan. The hypermarket chain

shown a serious reduction of retail space, was the chain 'Starik Hottabych.' In 2013 in Moscow and regions of Russia the number of stores decreased from 32 to six, five of which are in the capital. A key development in the DIY market in 2013 was active regional expansion, which led to increased competition in virtually all federal districts of the country. Leading players have expanded their presence in those Russian cities with a population of over 300 thousand people. The

The results will soon be in for the MosBuild Architecture and Design Awards (MADA) – the international competition for young architects and architectural students. While the candidates wait to find out whose work will be chosen as the 'Best Architectural Solution for Creating an Accessible Environment' and the 'Best Environmentally Sustainable Architectural Design', we thought that it was high time to find out more about the work of the members of the jury who will be deciding the verdict..

Koen Oltuis Waterstudio. NL (Netherlands) While scientists and environmentalists are warning about the rising sea and ocean levels, the Dutch architect Koen Oltuis has put forward a radically new approach to life in a changing world. His company, Waterstudio developed the design for 'Citadel',

a floating housing complex. The design features sixty luxury apartments on one platform that connects the floating bridge to the 'mainland'. One of the design's objectives was to reduce the costs (now unnecessary) against antiflooding measures.

'transparent' architecture. Most of the house's French windows and transparent walls open up the house to sunlight. The combined interior space provides open plan accommodation, where the living areas seamlessly flow in to the private spaces.

The house's interior spaces and outside terraces are combined into a single space, the exterior being highlighted by the use of the same materials inside and out. The architects' main problem was the construction of the bathroom window, which is set at an angle.

Sergey Makushev, DOM-A Architects Studio (Russia) The achitect Sergey Makushev designed a house in the style of a modern American residence. The numerous glass walls and windows ensure that the building blends in well with its surroundings. The design also features individual and private areas – children's, guest and master bedrooms – as well as many open spaces. These areas are connected both horizontally and vertically, flowing seamlessly into each other. The building's interior finish has been completed in the eco-style that is popular in Europe and which is exceptionally discerning about the quality of the materials used, ensuring that they are as close to natural tones as possible.

Mikko Heikkinen, HeikkinenKomonen Architects (Finland) The architect Mikko HHeikkinen is known for the design of Scandinavia’s first science and entertainment centre and the main science museum – ‘Evrika’ (co-designed by Markku Komonen). The complex’s contour ressembles an intergalactic spaceship, held together with metal plates and sheeting that glitter in the sun. The museum is made up of three pavilions and the GALILEI science park.
