Luzhniki will have all-season cafés
Two symmetrical pavilion cafés will be built on Prestizhnaya Alleya in front of the Grand Sports Arena, which will be open in all seasons, says the Chief Architect of Moscow Sergey Kuznetsov. The projects were harmonized with Moscomarchitecture
The pavilions are stretched on the sides of Prestizhnaya Alleya and are two-storey rectangular shapes, surrounded by terraces.
«The main hall is lined with copper and placed in an openwork frame of colonnades, their stone facing and rhythm similar to the style of the rest of the structures of the sports complex, — says Kuznetsov. — The cafés will be a part of the new infrastructure, which will appear in the Luzhniki for the 2018 World Cup a year and, as Mayor Sergey Sobyanin previously said, will turn the area into a first-class city park, that has everything you need for sports and recreation in all seasons.»
The architectural solution of the pavilions is identical. They will have two floors with rooms for 100 and 50 seats respectively, as well as seats on the terrace covered with a flat roof for rain protection.

According to Sergey Kuznetsov, the river embankment intercrossing with Prestizhnaya Alleya will be equipped for relaxation and sunbathing. «After the reconstruction Luzhniki Embankment will be full of activities — it will be perfect for jogging, riding a bike without disturbing anyone, and exercise on workout sites. At the beginning and at the end of the embankment there will be service centers with toilets, changing rooms and sports equipment rental, and in winter the Embankment and Prestizhnaya Alleya will be a skating rink,» — says Kuznetsov.
