Metropolis, one of the biggest mixed-use developments currently built in Moscow, occupies the site of the former ironworks, lately deserted and partly rented out as DIY market. It has changed the entire lifestyle in the Voikovskaya metro station area.
The development consists of two main parts: a mall with a hypermarket, a 250-shops gallery, cafes and restaurants, an entertainment zone and a cinema; and a business center consisting of three A Class office buildings.
The different function is stressed by means of architecture. A complex volume of the shopping center with terra-cotta facades is set against simplistic glass office blocks, extremely restrained in their geometry, where the simplicity of cubic structures is compensated with plastics of the facades, built on the basis of the interchanging rectangle niches and bay windows. The shopping center is separated from the offices by an open plaza raised above the ground level and separated from the main transit pedestrian traffic. The development is provided parking lots both in the underground garage and on the multi-level deck. Apart from shopping, entertainment and business functions the complex is also a part of a large transportation node. The gallery serves as a sheltered pedestrian connection between the metro station and the prospective passenger railway station.
Car traffic is organized considering the 4th transport ring being built, the compound's parking can be used as a park and ride facility.
The seriousness of the image of the legal company is emphasized by the laconism of the planning and finishing solutions - the verified accuracy of perforations and knots, the selection and location of the corresponding lightning solved in the form of modern light panels.
From the very beginning the office design provided for future reshaping of the office area, facilitating change in size and in the number of rooms. A special ceiling was selected to be connected with partition fixes.
The well-known real estate consulting company Cushman & Wakefield Stiles & Riabokobylko sought to unite all of its departments, scattered around Moscow, in a single space while moving into a new office.
