Unique Building and United Public Space in ZIL
United public space connecting Tyufeleva Roshcha Park, Vesnin Brothers Boulevard and the Hermitage-Moscow Museum Centerwill be created. Building No.10 of ZILART Residential Complex will be its connecting link. The building was designed by Michiel Riedijk, a Dutch architect. This information was given by Sergey Kuznetsov, Chief Architect of Moscow.
“The building consists of five interconnected towers of different sizes. The architectural concept of the substructure, that is, the common part of the building, as meant by the authors of the project, refers one to the industrial design of Vesnin brothers. Outside it is a covered gallery with a colonnade, fronted with stone, having stained glass and grill work pieces between the columns. Inside, there is space for shops, restaurants, cafes, bars, and rented premises. As Mayor Sergey Sobyanin said earlier, “ZIL is the largest reconstruction project for industrial zones not only in Moscow, but also in Russia” - Sergey Kuznetsov explained.
The residential towers of the new building will be fronted with dimensional aluminum panels of a triangular shape on a wireframe foundation. All elements of aluminum panels are designed so that a diagonal pattern appears on the building facade. The apartments are going to be glazed with energy-efficient double-glazed windows made of multifunctional glass.
The atrium will be located on the first floors in the public space of the building. This is the most prominent part of Vesnin Brothers Boulevard, the place where visitors to the park, the boulevard and the Hermitage Museum Center meet. Besides, on the lower floors of the building, there will be a swimming pool with a transparent roof, a fitness room and underground parking. Earlier, the project was approved by Moskomarkhitektura.
A key global trend has been implemented in the ZILART Residential Complex by LSR Group today, comments Michiel Riedijk, founder and partner of Neutelings Riedijk Architects (Netherlands). He says: “A clear line between residential districts, the business part of the city, places for recreation and entertainment is being erased. People want to live close to places where they can get services, they are able and want to work from home thanks to digitalization, they want to live in an energetic part of the city that offers attractive multifunctionality of space. ZILART keeps up with global development”.
