Trends of the future let us see what Saint Petersburg may look like, so that the residents of the future city will be satisfied and the economy will grow; there are challenges as well that the city will face - we did our best to include answers to all these questions in our project - intersection of the image of "resident and city of the future". In our project we used advanced experience and know-how, like HafenCity in Hamburg, Confluence district in Lyon, Slussenhofen quarter in Copenhagen.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
An exceptional project, a sub-center, undertakes cultural, social and touristic functions and releases the center of the city for historical and architectural landscaping. Moreover, we are creating a new cultural virtual space, which doesn't conflict with the reality. The social environment of the future is in tune with the personality of the residents.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
We would like to offer a project of comprehensive development of the "par excellence" quarter situated at one of the territories in Saint Petersburg beyond 2025. The blueprint suggests implementation of innovation city-planning, architectural, ecological, technological and social practices altogether, which may and will become the features of the new Petersburg city quarter within ten or twenty years. A great emphasis is laid on the "green" component with the area of at least one-third of the total territory.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in July 2016 and finished in November 2016 in St. Petersburg
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The whole masterplan was designed and created using photo manipulations on Photoshop, AutoCAD, SketchUp, 3ds Max
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
800,000 m2 out of 150 ha of the island total area are meant for commercial and office property development, 430,000 m2 - for residential facilities. Cultural, administrative, sports and judicial facilities will be built at the area of 300,000 m2. Apart from that, a large area - 50 ha - is kept for recreational facilities and landscaping. Upon the completion of all the construction stages this quarter will be able to generate up to 70,000 people per day from the nearest two subway stations and up to 50,000 people per day from the other means of public transport.

Our proposal, based on the territory survey, is to bring back the initial natural layout and free water flow, however in a more civilized way in order to create a new unique landscape and attract international sea and river yachting tourism. On the basis of the engineering survey we made a conclusion that it would be possible to lay the canals and build underground levels up to 25 meters deep.
We have been designing the "city" of the future, however it is important to emphasize that this project is a personal and experience-based one, and that explains a lot when it comes to our solutions. It is very important for us that this is Saint Petersburg and we tried to keep its spirit.
