In Moscow in the historic city centre, along the Malaya Dmitrovka and adjacent to the Hermitage Gardens, this residential complex is in the heart of the capital’s cultural life; with its austere, rigorous style, high quality and natural materials and the dimensions of the accommodation, this project reflects the Europeanisation process that is underway. The building is rectangular in shape, with four floors including the ground floor where the entrances, lobby and a ramp leading to the underground car park are located. The main façade looks onto the city park with a façade that is made entirely of glass and with slim strips with brise-soleil that are an integral part of the windows, designed with EBE 85 profiles. These profiles repeat the pattern of the narrow vertical strips at the short ends of the parallelepiped, alternating glass and blind panels whilst there are large door-windows in the façade opposite the one looking onto the park. The building’s essential, elegant design highlights both the high quality materials used and the colours: stone and light wood for the floors and facing, burnished brass and glass for the doors and windows.
