Elevated apartments in Moscow by Herzog & De Meuron

The Herzog & De Meuron study has revealed plans to redevelop an old factory in the heart of Moscow. the project involves the transformation of this large industrial space into a new lively and welcoming district.

The transformation includes residential, office and retail solutions. While many of the site’s original buildings will be preserved, a new structure, described as a "horizontal skyscraper", will be raised 35 meters above the ground.

The project is based on the redevelopment of the three original industrial structures of the site: building 1, a couple of historical structures, will host a food market, a fashion store, a co-working space with a congress center and a large gym; the building 2, the lost heart of the old complex, has been rebuilt according to its original design in bricks and will contain a large great hall and a local brewery; finally, building 3, a complex group of separate parts, will include a traditional Russian sauna, an arts center, childcare facilities and apartments.

Containing the main residential component of the site, the "horizontal skyscraper" was conceived as a raised lodge with stilts that connect the building with the ground as slender tree trunks. the gesture of lifting the structure not only frees the ground for public parks, but also allows for a generous view and a direct connection with the surrounding environment.
