The ultimate goal of the proposed design solution is the formation of a full-fledged urban environment in the designed area, ensuring the full range of the needs of the population living in it in accordance with the standards adopted to date, while being able to flexibly respond to rapidly changing trends and challenges of social development.
Decisions on the landscape organization of the territory are largely due to the planning structure adopted, in accordance with which all development is divided by common areas for transport and engineering infrastructure objects. In this connection, the concept of “islands” is proposed as a form-building principle for the organization of the landscape, when key elements of the landscape are peculiar compositional centers around which a building is formed.
We have prepared five main “patterns” representing the author’s interpretation of the characteristic facade solutions of cities with a pronounced stylistic individuality of BERLIN, LONDON, AMSTERDAM, NEW YORK and CHICAGO. The facades of designed houses are solved by combining these “patterns” with a visual highlight of the first floors occupied by public functions.
