The residential complex “D1” is formed around two dominants of modern society – a compact urban environment and a necessarily high level of transport accessibility. The intersection of traffic flows creates a concentration of activity, and forms a basis for a particular urban typology.
The dynamics of its location defined the basic morphological principle of the concept — thin, high volumes reflect the speed of the modern way of life. Concentration of functions – housing, commerce, cafes and restaurants, children’s center – embodies a new typology of a “vertical city”, characteristic of the megapolis as a place for life, work and leisure. The concept provides for the most efficient use of the site — private courtyards and a roof terrace on the stylobate ensure compliance with modern principles of a comfortable living environment.
A drive towards the future is manifested not only in the typology of the buildings, but also in their design: the internal and external shells combine reliability and strength with the planning flexibility capable of responding to changes in time and new demands.
Volume identification is achieved through a variety of and color solutions. Titanium, graphite and bronze casings are faced with aluminum panels featuring a three-component coloring technology. The design of the low-level building facade responds to the pulse of the city, while the two high towers represent the contrast of the vertical dynamics of the city dominance and the horizontal static of the city silhouette. These elements are made of anodized aluminum. Dynamic illumination highlights the connection to the place, responding to the rhythm of the city.
