Architectural composition

84 office units
360 restaurant seats
33 retail units

Functions
• hotel for business guests

• thematic restaurant and bar
• steet retail

The shape of the building is made in the rhythm of variable heights of volumes, maximally revealing the view of the territory from the side of the main entrance zone to the territory. One-storey stylobate is located along the pedestrian zone of TTK, it combines all volumes together.
On the facade adjacent to the historical building of the museum, it was decided to preserve a part of the historical appearance, archways repeating the proportions and architecture of historical objects on the territory of the ZIL plant. The first two-storey volume, in which the historical arches are inscribed, is a two-storey restaurant. Brick facade helps to bring human-scale and sense of place.
The volume of the office block is the center of the composition. The hotel volume completes the whole story and is the dominant of the architectural composition.
