In the search for an image of the project, the architects of the WALL bureau settled on the concept of "modern village" due to the remoteness of the site from Moscow and its active natural landscape. At first glance, the complex of buildings seems to be residential due to their inherent privacy and integration into the environment, but the center performs social functions. The project is conceptually related to its location - by the lake. It is based on the structure of the skeleton of a fish. The ridge has become the main axis - the street from which small volumes diverge like ribs.
In order to create a buffer zone between the roadway and buildings, the project provides a pedestrian street that runs along the southwestern part of the site. On the reverse side, the site is framed by the existing embankment, which turns into a new pier.
Buildings stretched along the site and having the same number of floors form a single linear sculpture and a full-fledged facade profile. The division of the volume into three blocks creates the effect of a variety of façade and provides visual and pedestrian permeability. The spaces between the blocks are being converted into public areas. Each block has its own terrace, which enriches the public space with new scenarios and connects the building with the waterfront.
The main object of reconstruction was the "old city" - small buildings with narrow permeable spaces - pedestrian streets - between them. The three reconstructed buildings continue the restrained aesthetics of the neighboring blocks, combining large blank and transparent façade surfaces. The main material of the facades - corten steel - conveys the spirit of the "old city". To create the effect of structural integrity, the three buildings are connected by one barn.
