Standard Residential Development for Strelka Competition

Today, on the one hand, the situation dictates new housing standards, on the other - there is a clearly expressed request for individualization of housing. Modern urban space must meet the requirements of flexibility, mobility, adaptability, variability. At the same time, it is important for society to maintain basic traditions and values, ensuring the adaptation of various clusters of comfortable urban life. Designing a neighborhood with integral modules-quarters with public and residential functions makes the hybrid development.

Structure — Module

Land area : 25 500 sq.m.

module
adaptive

The basis of the structure of the "Module" is a square that is easy to divide and transform. The main focus is on the internal content of the modules that connect the various functions.
The composition thus constructed makes it possible to distinguish four types of modules. These modules form the architectural and spatial environment within a residential cluster. The design solution provides for the allocation of three individual modules (closed, semi-closed and public) and a mixed module that includes the elements of the first three modules.

Modules ans yards

Gross floor area : 49 311 sq.m.

flexibility

MODULE "A". Closed yard.
This element of spatial composition is a closed space of the courtyard, formed by architectural solutions, including shape. Closed space is formed from sectional and gallery apartment buildings combined by common stylobate.
MODULE "B". Semi-closed courtyard.
A small apartment module remind us the individual houses. This element consists of separately standing volumes, united by an internal space. On the first floors of the module there are two level apartments with exits to their own gardens.
MODULE "B". The open yard.
This module is made up of sectional houses and includes a kindergarten.
MODULE "G". Public courtyard.
In this module sectional houses and gallery-type houses are combined and united by a common stylobate. Under this module there is the underground parking. This module is the most open and maximally turned into public space and sports grounds.

Facades - The structure determines the function

Parking: underground 5 694 sq.m.
Total area of apartments: 320950 sq.m.

individual
integrated

Forming the shape of the future quarter, we started from the image of private housing construction. Each module has its own identity in color and material execution.

The main elements that emphasize the approach chosen by us are pitched roofs, open terraces and natural materials in the finish. The internal facades of the yards are plastically complex, with a large number of loggias and windows on the facades. The principle of external facades is the simplicity of solutions that laconically emphasize urban development. In view of this, the commercial infrastructure is located in the stylobate parts of the houses and faces to the street.
