Multi-Function Complex in Ulan-Bator

This highly complicated and multi-function building will be unique in Ulan Bator, the Mongolian Capital. It is located on a rectangular plot, a fifteen minute car ride to Sukh Bataar Square, which is considered the center of Ulaan Bataar.

The project aims to highlight the area, initiate its development and contribute to its recognition as a new destination in the city.
With its 18 stories the building will be visible from different points of the city and will form its modern skyline.

Concept –
Mixed-Use on highly
compacted base

GBA 75 000 sq.m.
GLA 55 000 sq.m.

Class of office - B
Number of apartments - 428

The highly compacted base is taken by the shopping center with the fourth floor completely devoted to entertainment, such as a multiplex cinema, kids’ entertainment center, a trendy night club, and a fitness center. Incorporated multilevel parking lot with two underground levels has about 400 parking places.
Three towers top the building, the first one includes apartments, the second one two A-class offices, and the third one a 5-star hotel.

All three towers have easy access to the shopping center’s rooftop, where the hotel’s restaurant terraces are located, a relaxation area onto which an office canteen opens out, and more private pockets of space for the exclusive use of the apartment’s inhabitants.
The heart of this roof is a sunken plaza that will feature an open air public space accessible to shopping center customers.
The architecture of the towers can be described as modest. The forms are modern and, and appear quite simple in comparison with the organic-based roof design from which they rise up.

Their facades resemble function, the windows shape and sizes allow for the easy identification of the tower’s function. So the hotel has horizontal windows, with a principle of one window per one room, the offices are covered with a glass curtain wall allowing for maximum daylight, and the port-fenetre windows reveal apartments.
