Pedestrian bridges connect the private urban courtyard spaces situated on top of the plinths. The towers are situated deep within the perimeter blocks, thus lessening their atmospheric and emotional impact.

The space in between the planning units is verdant and conceived as a network of unbroken alleys. The absence of underground structures ensures abundant planting. A natural character of these alleyways counters the high‐density reality of the development. Even on the elevated plinths, one may enjoy the shadow of trees planted in special wells.

A spacious park is a centerpiece to the design. It unites the heritage trees, preserved on the industrial site, with a local preserved monument and new recreation spaces and grounds, complete with a water pond. This new space opens toward the Perovskoe highway and has a potential to become an important local public space.

Our design is permeated by light. We have shaped the towers to balance the façade‐to‐sky ratio. This effect is further intensified by the contrast between the textured, brick‐clad urban villas and the lofty, aspirational glossy towers.
