From the architect. In the end of May, in the Russian capital, architectural biennale «АRCH Moscow» is traditionally held. za bor architects this year presented an essentially new idea of effective use of inhabited areas with the aim of practical business spaces creation

The concept is especially remarkable since Moscow is the biggest city in Europe with promptly growing economy and permanent shortage of "creative" office areas needed by numerous design-studios, modern art galleries and other organizations the activity of which is connected with art.

Prominent feature of many Moscow areas is the presence of multi-storey buildings with blind end walls and wide passage between them. This project provides for usage of free spaces between buildings for creation of original and economic offices which do not block the court yard access.

The first realization of this concept shall become za bor architects’ own workshop which is planned to be build in between the two houses at the 5th Kozhukhovskaya Street. The project provides for creation of a three-floor volume with an accessible roof area, divided with modular floor panels. The framework which shapes it, is a single structural unit clamped between the blind facades of the houses. The polygonal main facade solved in dynamical volumes, is made from light and durable cellular polycarbonate; the facade turned to the court yard is flat and completely glazed.

leeboo. i know these are renderings. it's very interesting and i'd like to see that project someday, but making better renderings... not convincing.

I'm doing my final project, I'm ceramic tile designer and I'm collecting information about deconstructivism and structures similar to this. I wanted to know if there is any chance to get the photography 'interior-2nd-Floor.jpg' in a better resolution for printing. Obviously, I'll mention you under the photography and add you to the credits of my final work.

leeboo1211 · June 09, 2011

I'm pretty sure these are still renderings...how they would solve the structural problem of actually grafting onto existing structure would be interesting to see.

Sammy Xu · June 27, 2011 06:24 AM

Yeah, these are renderings; but they look real; the night one is especially convincing; but hey
architects aren't complete physics noobs; they know something about whether their designs would work or not
