This project includes a dramatic series of riverfront residential buildings on the outskirts of the Russian capital.The challenge was how to make a distinctive solution for mass-housing in the context of the Moscow Oblast, reflecting the nature of the place and the aspirations of those who will live there.
In the absence of immediate contextual clues we have taken nature as a starting point, drawing upon the natural variety of patterns and colours corresponding to a historic vision of the setting as dense forests and fast flowing rivers.
Apartments maximise the river view and solar penetration and generate a variety of configurations of shifting façade planes with pixelated colours and bay windows creating further 3 dimensional interest.
The buildings could create a distinctive landmark within the region, at once recognisable and distinctive and a pleasant place to live for the occupants.
