А huge field surrounded by a small single-story village was chosen as a site for the new Zoya exhibition complex. Keeping in mind the context of the place memorable for the history of the Great Patriotic War, miniature buildings neighboring enormous open space we built out concept around the idea of interscale. The shapes and layout of wooden houses were interpreted through different volumes fit into the museum architecture.

The two-story building with a total area of 2 500 square meters includes an exhibition area, café, gift shop, and all the associated amenities. Each hall is an independent volume having its own expositional function with viewpoints overlooking iconic locations outside – this is how the historic landscape gets involved in the exhibition narrative. All the volumes are streamlined by a colonnade perimeter-wise adding strictness to the museum image, enlarging roofed walking areas, and uniting the building with the surrounding area.

The original geometry of the building front made of textured concrete panels sharpens light effects and interprets the shapes of the surrounding village houses. Minimalistic interiors made of natural materials make the exposition content stand out, the café with floor-to-ceiling glazing and kitchen are organized around the central element resembling a Russian stove.
