Letni Sad — Shopping center

The Letniy Sad Shopping Center
This shopping center is a part of multifunctional housing, social and business complex, and is located in the north part of Moscow. It consists of three aboveground levels of retail trade and two underground levels of parking.
Its functional zones include: 1-3 floors with shops; the 3rd floor includes space for an unusual food court — restaurants with open bars called “Orangereya” (The Greenhouse). All the floors are connected through a round, central atrium with a glazed roof and vertical greenery.

Concept — The Greenhouse

Total area of the shopping center 30000 sq.m
Project area 7720 sq.m.


Our main task was to create comfort and coziness for the visitors, in order to make the “Letni Sad” shopping center a unifying element for two different sides of life: the active urban environment and a feeling of peace and appreciation of nature. This thesis is expressed in the interior by the use of organic colors, texture, plant prints, plus a lot of light and air.
The project’s individuality and recognisability has been achieved through the black met-al construction pavilions, which are typical for greenhouses. These type of cafe pavilions are the attraction points on the intersection of the primary transit routes.
Materials and methods: use of a grid structure in the column framing, “street" lighting, decorative suspension achieved in a plant-like style, showcases made of thin metal framework, wood/stone texture and concise lightning.

Idea — Food square

3rd floor


The Food court is located on the third floor of the shopping center. There is a distinctive zone with cozy nooks for relaxation and an open space with a central bar and live greenery. Metal framework arches and pavilions create the necessary division of functional zones, and create a recognisable style for the greenhouse. Natural lightning is achieved via the use of lateral pano-ramic windows and zenith lanterns.

Design — Atrium

connects 3 floors

green area

The main accent of the interior is the central atrium. The atrium framing is made of a rack structure with point lightning and light radiuses on the ceiling. Through the atrium, all the floors, passages and vertical greenery are connected.

Design — Floor

2 shades of grey


The floor imitates fallen leaves. Two shades of grey ceramic granite are laid in the shape of a rhombus, creating a gradient from dark to light. This method allows the showcases and central constructions of the cafe and atrium to be highlighted.
