Tasks: Design apartments with “Hermitage” garden view. Integrate a huge building into a small site, considering severe urban restrictions.
Solutions: Mostly all apartments overlook the garden. Eastern facade design with vertical lamellas, finished with copper, leaves much privacy for dwellers, but at the same time opens magnificent views. Layout of the building embraces the ceiling amount of apartments despite space limitations and permitted minimal construction footprint. The layout of the apartments allows to put fire walls close to adjacent buildings with no loss of quality of life. The lobby and surrounding grounds were placed deeper so the higher floors remained within the high-rise limit.
