House with Openwork Faсade to Appear at ZIL
A house with round bay windows and sculptural panels will appear at ZIL. If you take a closer look at the unusual design, you can see the outlines of car parts - shafts, rotors and gears. This was what Chief Architect of Moscow, First Deputy Chairman of Moskomarkhitektura Sergey Kuznetsov spoke about.
“Facade work has begun on one of the four buildings of house No. 17 at ZIL. Its design is made in such a way that the house looks like lace. Parts of its façade, put together, make up a huge avant-garde picture. The entire façade is in black and white and was designed by the Dutch architectural firm DROM. This building fits perfectly into the general concept of ZILART, where every house is a work of art - said Sergey Kuznetsov.
“For the facades facing the boulevard and the street, we have developed an openwork pattern on decorative panels made of fiber-reinforced concrete” - the authors comment on their project. "If you take a closer look at the unusual design, you can see the outlines of car parts - shafts, rotors and gears. This creates a surprise effect owing to the subtlety and tenderness of the pattern and at the same time reminds of the historical past of this place."
Industrial designers from the Belgian company Lion Beach, who specialize in computer animation, also took part in the development of the facade of this building. They worked on the pattern trying to make it look as impressive as possible in sunlight and at night, when the light of the apartments falls on it.
All the work was carried out under the guidance of Meganom bureau experts, who developed a unified design code for ZILART. Let us note that the original architecture from leading bureaus is one of the main components of the all-inclusive concept, within the framework of which LSR Group builds all of its residential complexes in Moscow. This concept assumes the presence of all the components of a comfortable life within a walking distance from residential buildings.
