Grey-Green event space for private meetups and lectures is located in a former XIX century warehouse. In 2019 the industrial area was converted into a contempo business center called “Krasnaya Strela” (the Red Arrow). The building occupied by the event space is only several meters apart from not active railway line. This location gives it a special flair over it with windows overlooking a remarkable industrial view. This event space is an example of adaptive reuse of industrial heritage. Currently it is one of the anchors of the whole renewed area. One of the architectural tasks was to preserve authentic elements of the building, the other was to make sure that the new venue is convenient for both its guests and the staff.  Only a single original brick wall survived the redevelopment; a modern structural steelwork was erected. Mila Titova, the project author, shares her impressions, “steel trusses and persisting brick pillars created two different rhythmic patterns. It seemed interesting and I decided to highlight the contrast between these elements”. That’s how the idea was born to cover the trusses with giant arches and to draw attention to original structures of the building. The combination of grey concrete and shades of green gave the facility its name: “Grey-Green”. View more View full description
