ArchCouncil approved project of residential house in Khamovniki
The ArchCouncil of Moscow supported the project of a residential house in Khamovniki, at Vtoroy Neopalimovskiy Pereulok, 3. The building will have six floors and be 4.5 meters higher than the existing one, said the Chief Architect of Moscow, Sergey Kuznetsov.
The project, designed by the architects of Bureau «Tsimailo, Lyashenko and Partners», envisages construction of a new building on the site of the existing houses; the building footprint will remain unchanged. The existing houses—two five-storey buildings of the early XX century—have no historical value.
The presented solution is based on a simple building massing, with windows having classic relief design and proportions, replicated from the existing building. The facades are planned to be faced with natural stone.
«The project had been previously submitted for consideration, and recommendations were given to make a little bit more classic design of the facade,» said Alexander Tsimailo.
The Council members unanimously supported the project, expressing their recommendations only in relation to the architectural solution for the facade, which looks more massive due to its narrow windows. However, these details, as well as recommendation to raise the cornice of the building to the height of the attic in order to visually increase the height, were left to the discretion of the project designers.
«My colleagues and I support the presented design. The project is good, interesting, of high quality, and definitely does not affect the city look,» said the Chief Architect of Moscow Sergey Kuznetsov.
