C CONTEMPORARY ART CENTER ON SOUTH-PORT QUAY

All the cultural centers in Moscow are concentrated within the limits of the Garden ring. On the basis of the general concept “The green river” - park on a place of liquidation of large industrial zones which penetrates all Moscow from the North, from Losinii ostrov, on the south, up to Bitcevskiy woods, the new center in Nagatino flood-land was generated. For its development and dispersal of the existing cultural-public cultural public center of Moscow the project of a museum which will be some kind of is offered a magnet. The scale of a building is caused it Sign place. Owing to the scale the building will be a dominant visible from opposite and adjoining coast of Moscow-river. The projected building is in territory of Southern port. The site the area of 18 hectares settles down directly on South-port quay, along a coastal line. All territory of projected quay is the open public space, park above which the center of the modern art towers. The building settles down on a place of crossing “The The green river river” and one of the widest places of Moscow Moscowriver, with an output on it. The entrance to a building is carried out from Yuzhnoportovaja street in the east, and in the West - from projected road which bends around all quay and is continuation of the travel leaving on the Prospectus of Andropov. The museum consists of a underground and elevated part. The elevated part represents a building in the form of trefoil, towering above the ground. The central part of a museum leans on the ground, its wings are the consoles rising above the ground on height up to 15m. They lean on monolithic support. One of wings leaves directly to Moscow-river, another reaches along park, and the third specifies on “The Green river”. The underground part is original a support for a museum in which there are all additional technical and administrative premises, offices, funds, masterful, and as a parking, a media library, Library and lecture hall. The input in a underground part is isolated from a way of movement of the basic stream of visitors. An input p in workshops p and offices are located from northern and southern part of a building. Unloading is carried out as in a underground part, from western and east parties. Besides in east part the two-storied underground parking on 220 parking places. The Front entrance in a museum is carried out from east part of a building, through a long corridor under one of three wings of building, from which people get in the main thing of foyer. Wardrobe, bathrooms, cafe, shop and premises of administration in the same place settle down. In the center of foyer the ramp leading in the basic exhibition space is located. Practically all elevated part is allocated under exhibitions, with greater open spaces for installations. In the middle is available atrium with the main ladder leading from foyer on the maintained roof. The roof of a building represents maintained space, original Park of sculptures, with a canopy on which lanterns settle down, for partial illumination of exhibition facilities. The facade of a building consists from false joints the trapezoid form, on which top surface solar batteries settle down that allows a building to save the electric power and to develop own one. Partially false joints have through piercing of insignificant diameter for the minimal illumination of internal space.

THEATRE CENTER

The theatre was always perceived as a is traditional-classical building with canon stage-box and bulky scenery. However presently the theatre quickly develops aside small forms and alternative decisions. There are modern statements and street representations. Unfortunately, the theatrical environment loses the communication with architectural. While, it seems to me, the architect should work in common with the director that the spectator could receive the purest impression of performance, instead of the form. That is, to aspire to the neutral form which would not stir to expansion of borders of theatre as action.

MOSCOW OFFICE O OF BANK OF AMERICA MERRILL LYNCH

The aim of the project was to create a modern, classic, but functional space that reflects the corporate brand BoAML, using natural materials such as stone floors and wood paneling on the walls. Besides, it was necessary to provide the possibility of future alterations office. We worked closely with representatives BoAML in New York and Moscow, to make sure that our project will be acceptable in the global corporate standards, standards but at the same time will meet the aspirations and cultural needs of the company in Moscow. In addition, we worked closely with the purchasing department BoAML on specifications, ordering and installation of materials and furniture. New workspace reflects the stability and reliability BoAML, at the same time creating a comfortable space for supportive of employees. In the design solutions used only quality materials and the simplicity of line and form only emphasizes the quality of the selected solution. solution The central atrium of the main building has a dynamic visual effect, but also created some difficulties with the organization of internal planning and logistics. Office space is divided functionally into floors with offices for staff and VIP- zones for meetings with clients. Offices for staff include areas for informal meetings and waiting rooms to provide a relaxed and informal environment for communication. Plans have office space as open plan offices, as well as sections on several jobs, grouped around the main atrium of the building. Business processes in the Bank of America Merrill Lynch is almost indistinguishable from the processes inside other banking organizations operating in this market segment. The new office has given the opportunity to upgrade office space and improve its quality in accordance with the bank's corporate standards. VIP area to meet clients located on the 8th floor and contains a small conference room and a meeting g room equipped q pp with a system y for video conferencing. g Particular attention was paid to lighting, open-plan offices, where they were offered lights Zumtobel Lighting Melow V, due to their ability to scatter light evenly without creating glare and bright shades.

KEMPINSKI HOTEL IN MINSK

A complex of four 10-storey buildings is to be built in a picturesque setting on a bend in the River Svisloch. The three blocks overlooking the river will contain a hotel, short-stay apartments, and the kind of infrastructure that is appropriate for high-class hotel complexes (restaurants, a fitness centre, a conference centre). In the depths of the site there will be an office building whose glazed structure and refined meshed ornamentation will provide an attractive contrast with the more monumental style of the buildings alongside the river (the latter blocks will be lined with ribbed stone slabs). All four blocks will be linked by a shared underground space with car parks and ancillary facilities.

D1 DISTRICT IN SKOLKOVO

In accordance with the master plan concept of the Skolkovo innovation center initially developed by the French AREP Ville office, the innocity territory of Skolkovo is divided into several districts, and for detailed planning of each district two offices headed by architects – members of the Town-planning Counsil under the Skolkovo Fund were chosen. One of the districts, the “Southern” one or D-1, D-1 is to be supervised by the SPEECH office jointly with the David Chipperfield Architects. Architects The following architects are also involved in the developing of other districts and Skolkovo project in general: OMA; SANAA; Herzog& de Meuron; Stefano Boeri architetti; Project MEGANOM; Valode& Pistre; Mohsen Mostafavi; MDP/Michel Desvigne. The D-1 District is located on the southern border of the city and is separated from the main territory by a wide forest belt. belt Such isolation as well as combination of different functions on its territory: residential, office, cultural and children’s centers, gave the authors the idea of turning the district into a microcity with its own structure, nature of development, and unique atmosphere. Priority was given to the comfort of future inhabitants, reaching by creation of atmosphere and scale of small European city with houses, streets and squares various in architecture and its contact with the natural environment. As a result, the major part of the district is built up p with q quarters of interconnected with abutting g on each other separate p houses. The most compact development of 4-storey houses is concentrated along the Central Boulevard. Towards the outskirts the height of buildings lessens to 3-2 floors, the spaces between the quarters broaden, making small cozy squares that are gradually growing into the forest area appear.

Thus, the Skolkovo masterplan concept was concretized in accordance with the clarified district layouts, Fund requirements and updated technical and regulatory requirements. This stage can be considered the key one in the city design development as it means a transfer from abstract modeling to the direct design of the innocity. innocity A great importance in work at the urban planning documentation was in its successful concordance with the LEED “Gold� standards, according to which for the first time in Russia there will be constructed the innovation city Skolkovo.

HOUSING ESTATE “IN THE FOREST”

The housing estate “in the forest” is located in one of the prestigious districts of North Western Moscow area – the Krasnogorsk district, in the closest vicinity to Moscow Ring Road and to newly built subway station “Mitino”. On the square of 67 hectares they will place several residential quarters, attributed to the economy class, class a shopping and leisure centre, centre a church, church two schools and three kindergartens. kindergartens Population of the micro-district will be equal to 20,000 people. High housing density of the micro-district will be combined with the checked scale of buildings and residential quarters, with the properly elaborated transport system, with large green areas and with the individual concept of public areas. All the aforementioned developments taken in the complex will provide the inhabitants of the housing estate “In the forest” with the highest comfort and life quality comparable with residing in the best European apartment blocks and it will change the perception of the conception “Economy class residential real estate.“ It was very significant to find a few variants of the residential quarter layout for such a large-scale micro-district and, above all, for meeting such high requirements for the spatial and planning solutions. The ribbon building layout of the compact residential quarters with a lateral length not over 90 meters is taken as the base one. Moreover, the distance between the quarters will be equal to 30 meters. equa ete s. The eu underground de g ou d pa parking g will be co constructed st ucted u under de eac each residential es de t a qua quarter, te , which enables to avoid over-crowding of the cars on the by-apartment territory and in interquarter passages. Flat roofage of the parkings will be turned into the well-appointed green yards.

The significant feature of architectural solution became the principle of individual design of each ribbon building. The facade of each building has its own author design in spite of several types of sections for the whole micro-district. Due to the original g facade techniques, q volumetric elements (bay windows, consoles and balconies) as well as to the active usage of various colours each residential quarter will get the original set of buildings integrally forming the unique ensemble. On the central axis of the micro-district, on both sides from the church there are the residential quarters with fundamentally different layout. In the Southern part there is the area with single point blocks to be square and round as per the plan and to stand on the common stylobate. To the North from the central square there is the residential quarter consisting of two lines of sectional buildings forming the symmetric enfilade of several yards, by their design stylistics, rather reminding the squares traditional for small European towns. The inner space of this quarter has been turned into the single pedestrian area.
