Mixed Use, Kommunalka Compound, Lenin District | Moscow, Russian Federation 2008 | Concept Design
PRINCIPAL ARCHITECT Ljupce Jovanovski, M. Arch.
Project was designated as Mixed Use building on a 4 levels - or 3+1 underground, basement or service level. It accommodated Retail and Office components. Challenge for us as designers was Client`s request to keep and utilize existing on site structure that was approximately 32m wide and 65m long and incorporate it to a newly developed building! We basically adopted existing structure as a glass cube that was slightly rotated to our new designed axis by 5 degrees approximately and fully integrate it in to new structure, with no functional constraints nor restrictions. Overall GFA was around 13,100 m2, with approximately 3,282 m2 per level, mainly of Retail area.
