Text description provided by the architects. Luxury Village

The Luxury Village shopping complex occupies an elongated site of 600 m along Rublyovo-Uspenskoye Highway, between the villages of Barvikha and Zhukovka. A crooked pedestrian street between two elongated strips of shops connects 5 squares. The street runs from a spa hotel on one end to a theatre on the other.


The one- and two-storey shop buildings share a common basement with underground parking, storage and technical rooms. The landscape solution was created by the West 8 design team.

Mercury Theater

The street promenade leads to a theater. The interior of the foyer forms a continuation of the theater square.


A deep facade of wooden blades, designed in a wave-shape, gives the building dynamics, while remaining stable. The motion effect is observed by both the theater visitors walking around the foyer and people looking from their cars.

The transformer hall can operate in four modes: as a theater, a cabaret, and a stage for fashion shows or presentations. Hall transformation is provided by eight hydraulic mechanisms, which can lower or raise the floor platforms by five meters.

When modified for theatrical performances, the hall can accommodate about 600 people in the stalls and over fifty in the seventeen VIP-boxes, located two levels above the ground, with a special bar on the second level.
