SMOLNA OFFICE COMPLEX
Location: Kyiv, Ukraine
Design team: V. Kudin, N. Besarab
When developing the spatial solution of the complex, the authors focused on its location. The site is located on the territory of a former industrial zone, which has a pronounced relief. Taking into account the predominantly industrial environment, the authors have developed such an image for the new building that it fits into the laconic landscape created by industrial facilities. The most expressive element of the structure is the dynamic volume of the three-storey block, which partly hangs in the air. On its roof, there’s a park where the workers can rest and unite with nature. The project has been awarded a NUUA diploma.
