Tasks: Design a residential quarter within historical area of Moscow center preserving its character. Create new positive environment on the site previously isolated and inaccessible.
Solutions: Four types of facades determine the character of the residential quarter and its re-emerging courtyards. The design of courtyards heated in winter period is inspired by a historical image of European old town square. Each of the courtyards exhibits its own paving design: cupreous and golden with specially matching red and yellow maple trees. The project of reconstruction considers the following changes: windows enlargement of the main façades in order to organize shop-windows; mezzanine floors buildup; historical facades rehabilitation. Monochromatic finishing colors were chosen in order to harmonize historical facades and various modern architectural elements
