The New City — Neighborhood in Vladimir

The New City is a concept name for the whole new neighborhood we designed in Vladimir.
Vladimir , with ca 350 000 inhabitants, is one of the most important tourist hubs in European part of Russia. Nevertheless the city does not offer any new contemporary housing and the new neighborhoods are still being built with old rules .

The ambition of the project is to create a new neighborhood in Vladimir with exquisite urban quality that is no present at the city. A place for living, working and spending time that is quite undependable from the city itself and with its own value, a “city within a city” so to say. It is a flagship project that might show the way for the future developments.

Question 1 — How can we create a whole new part of a city?

169 ha in total
3,6ha for mixed-use development

We established a green corridor that connects various neighborhoods with the relax, sport and social functions gathered around it, its strong concept provides the district with a new sense of identity.

The central place of the urban structure is designed as an open square with cultural activities and acts as a catalyst of city life. The cultural center plays an important role in formulating the new sense of community and empowering the identity of the new district thus it is located centrally and will be connected to the main square.

The regular network of streets and connections is designed that builds up around a central boulevard. They also break up a large housing block into smaller conceived neighborhoods. The houses are arranged around the green, car-free courtyards that also enhance the feel of community. The building heights are differentiated with highest sections located on the perimeter of the city. A glimpse of the central green corridor is guaranteed from everywhere.

Question 2— What stands for quality urban living?

3,7 ha with unbuildable with a natural landscape along the gorge.
885000sqm of apartments
62 000 inhabitants

Car parks are designed as multilevel garages gathered along the main boulevard and parking places are provided along the roads in the proximity of housing.They are in 5 minutes walking distance from 80% of houses.
The offices cluster located close to one of the car entrances to the new neighborhood both provides the new district with accessible working places and offers its spaces for lease to the city itself.

The district is designed with pedestrians in mind, with and infrastructure that supports walking and main public functions located in the proximity. Bicycle lanes accompany all pedestrian routes giving a possibility to connect easily every corner of the new neighborhood.
