Kievskiy station – Retail Redevelopment

The building of the Kievskiy railway station is a valuable historical and architectural monument, which requires the right approach in modern context. In addition to architectural elements in Neoclassical and Empire style and art panels of famous masters, the building is equipped with a landing stage, which is monument of engineering art, and one of the highest clock towers.

It goes without saying, that historical context cannot be mothballed, and it is necessary to take into account the new time that requires relevant changes for the needs of city residents and passengers, so that the building remains attractive to visit and continued to live.

Implementation — How to combine a historical object and forms of modern?

In the situation of a building of Kievskiy station we observed that the historical object and the forms of modern life exist in some way separately from each other, which harms the perception of the monument, and essential needs of visitors and eventually the environment as a whole. By planning and redesign of space and elements we tried to find the correct degree and quality of implementation in the existing building in order to free the architectural context and organize logical flows of passengers and comfortable spaces.

The project all sugests to reorganise support facilities and hide the whole commerce into exempt spaces around the perimeter of the main halls. Portals of entrances and shopfronts are decorated in a unified style, without flashy elements. Seats are organized in one central zone and are made of natural materials, suitable for the color concept of the historical environment. Additional artificial lighting and green zones with living plants are organized.
