Eco-futuristic Observation Decks to Appear on Roofs of Five Moscow Skyscrapers
Observation decks equipped with binoculars and telescopes will appear on the roofs of five Moscow skyscrapers. They will open the views of the river, Moscow-City, Victory Park, Kutuzovsky Prospekt, Hotel Ukraina and Moscow State University. Eco-futuristic decks were designed with participation of Wowhaus architectural bureau. Aeon Development is the author of the concept.
“The use of roofs for high-rise recreational spaces is rare, and there are still few such examples in Moscow. Basically, we are talking about observation decks and restaurants on the roofs of office buildings or spaces with a very limited set of infrastructure. I hope the situation will change, and such projects are quite capable of improving the image of operated roofs, showing how effective and safe it is. Here you can arrange parties, work and hold meetings, even play sports,” said Sergey Kuznetsov, Chief Architect of Moscow.
The area of each roof is about 550 square meters, which allows creating a rich space with comfortable zoning, while multilayer glass protections 4 meters high guarantee visitors complete safety.
A comprehensive landscaping project adapted to the climate of the high floors has been developed for each roof. Plants are selected in such a way that the roofs remain decorative all year round. Zoning of the space will be maintained with the help of longline planting of trees and shrubs. Severallightingmodesservethesamepurpose.
A sense of privacy will be created by zones with domed igloo-like gazebos, designed for 4-8 people. In transparent spherical gazebos you can spend time with family and friends in any weather. The gazebos are equipped with ventilation systems, heating, overhead lighting, an audio system, WiFi and chargers. Next to them there is a barbecue area. In addition, the decks will be used for yoga classes.
The first example of a comprehensive improvement of the roofs of residential skyscrapers will be the River Park Towers Kutuzovsky residential complex, which Aeon Development is implementing on Kutuzovsky Prospekt on the first line of the Moskva River.
