Park City, is aimed to provide top-of-the-market housing and commercial accomodations in one of the most strategic areas in Moscow. It develops along the Moscow river on a straight axis to the Cremlin, and it is bounded in the southern side, by Kutuzovsky prospect. Area C, includes buildings K6, K7, K8, and it plays a huge role in the urban composition of the Park City Masterplan: it represents, in fact, the Main Gate to the whole site.
Our proposal for The Project planned for the new “Park City” in Moscow raises three Architectural issues: 1) How to conceive a new residential area compatible with the public and the private, able to enjoy and participate with harmony in the design and in the life of the green boulevards (zone D). 2) How to transform unique heritage buildings in high quality construction able to represent a mix of technological, commercial and business center with cultural areas, always connected with excellent views of the river and the social life of the diagonal(Zone I). 3) Develop a new landscape design interacting with the existing buildings improving the pedestrian and visual relations between the boulevard, the diagonal and the water front.
The aim of linking the new Park City Area, turns into this concept-propose: buildings follow an in-line continuous facade, featuring contemporary elements even if with traditional materials. Volumes show at the same time an irregular pattern and a continuous front. Elevations toward the Boulevard are developed with setbacks at level +1 and level +8, as outlined in the Masterplan: the perspective view confirms how the alignments of the setbacks of all the buildings facing the Boulevard, can give huge strenght to the front elevation.
