A micro district of a new type – dense & urban
Domashniy District Maryino
Location: Moscow, Russia
Client: PSN Group
Programme: Masterplan with 370.000 m² program: residential, retail, community functions, primary school, two kindergardens, supporting uses
Domashniy micro district is located in the south east of Moscow at the banks of the Moskva and an extension to the Soviet built district of Maryino. Earmarked as a regeneration site, it is currently being transformed from an industrial storage area into a new middle class neighbourhood. Consequently the masterplan developed by MLA+ focuses on establishing a new place. Buildings together with the open space network and the programming create a dense and intense urban environment for new and existing residents of Maryino equally.
The architecture puts great emphasis on the human scale while also considering the monumental scale present in Moscow. Lower buildings and higher towers establish a mix that is both human and metropolitan. The detailing and the use of brick add detail where needed and important to a quality urban environment.
The construction of the first phase is currently under way and further phases are in preparation.
