Stadium Dinamo — Shopping Center at VTB Arena Park

The shopping center, forms a part of Arena Park which is a whole city district, consisting of luxury housing, offices, a 5-star hotel, park, and everything that surrounds the focal point of the ensemble - the 1920s ‘Dynamo’ Sport Stadium redesigned and reconstructed in its new form suitable for the 21st century.
The stadium initially designed by Arkady Langman and Lazar Tcherykover has a vivid history of sporting and cultural events including the 1980 Olympic Games football finals and a Michael Jackson concert in 1996 attended by 71000 people.

The Arena Park shopping center has an interior as unique as all the components of the complex itself with a bit of fashion, style, ecology, sport, and history.
We all understood that the interior of this shopping center had to be unique as well. We decided to base its design story on three pillars: history, sport, and the park. And keep it distinctive with a slight touch of hedonism.
When we enter we are welcomed by quite modest black and white interior, but soon we find out that it’s not that simple. There are three huge niches based on an elliptical plan filled in with a mosaic inspired by those created by Dayneca for the interior of the Mayakovskaya metro station in 1938. The shop fronts resemble the strict order of a 1920s exterior façade. And the original bas-reliefs done by the famous soviet sculptor Sergey Merkurov, which than decorated the north and south porticos were here used to embellish the entrance halls.
There are apparent references to the park nearby, such as the two green walls surrounding the elevator porticos, but a more observant customer will surely discover that the shape of the solid Corian benches inside the mall resembles the cast iron ones standing in the park.
