STATUS: international competition 1st prize ex aequo TYPE: mixed used development CLIENT: KROST developer moscow GFA: 44.000m²
The competition brief by Russian developer Krost asked to design a 44.000m² mixed used development in moscow Krasnogorsk including residential, retail, underground parking and park/leisure. The site is located close to existing residential towers and an indoor ski arena.
The winning concept splits the length of the volume in different parts, while the main boundaries from the competition brief needed to be maintained. The different volumes consist of 3 and 5 storey high housing units while the main retail part and the park is situated on the ground level. By creating different components of balconies, loggias and windows a parametric model was set up to distribute the components along the facade of the volume reacting on parameters such as partition walls, cores and the size and function of the room layout.
