Services: Concept

Project team leader: Yuliy Borisov

   The architectural offer is directed on creation of a memorable image of modern shopping center which tunes in surrounding building of the city. Therefore facades of a mall possess a strict rhythm and plasticity similar in size to surrounding building that allows the building to be organically integrated into environment, and use of such materials as architectural concrete and glass emphasize and strengthen this effect.
   The designed building represents a uniform four- storeyed volume with a strongly marked net of columns. Main entrances to the building are located from a main square. The additional entrance is situated on the west side and is focused on foot traffic from metro station under construction. All entrances are marked with fragments of a full glazing. Solid-core structural glazing is applied as protecting designs of the first floor on the main facades. The project intends the arrangement of open terraces and a cafe on the accessible roof area of the third floor.
