Com City – Business Center

The Telecom City office buildings are located on the southwest side of Moscow, in Kievskoe Shosse, approximately 1.5 km from the MKAD ring road. The plot is a part of the ‘new’ Moscow and so public transportation routes such as the metro lines and two bus connections provide easy access to neighboring Shosse for visitors.
Blank Architect was responsible for adapting a concept provided by Cigler Marani Architects into a Building Permit Design.

Concept –
Building Permit Design.

GBA 420 000 m2, GLA 188 000 m2

The design also provides a connection to Rumiancevo; a nearby village. The car flow diagrams created by the authors of the concept solved a complicated traffic situation, providing access in various directions from the plot and simultaneously creating a small city.

One of the main goals of the project was to provide a calm and quiet atmosphere for the office employees. Therefore all the technical areas were located above the fifth-story offices and protected with acoustic screens. Also the stylobate was designed using a sophisticated landscaping technique that created green areas as well as water ponds and fountains.

Design –
Eight office buildings
located on stylobate.

Glazed facades reflect this idea – white, dark grey profiles for glazing, with grey and white sun screens to suit and highlight the purpose of the complex. Two bus stops were specially designed and placed at the two main entrances to intercept the main flow of traffic.

The complex consists of eight, five-story office buildings located on stylobate. Under each building there is a two-level parking lot. All the parking lots are connected with the shopping mall which provides access to the office buildings via
lifts and escalators.

The retail gallery located under the stylobate connects all functions. Various types of services, such as a hairdressers’, a small fitness center, restaurants, cafes, and a supermarket give employees the opportunity to come to work and feel as if they were in a small city district. Around fifteen thousand people will come there to work each day. Therefore there are thirty-two lifts provided to communicate between the office floors.
