4 Neighbourhoods, 4 Identities around 1 shared public realm
Ryazanskiy Prospekt 26
Location: Moscow, Russia
Program: Masterplan study for the redevelopment of an industrial site into a mixed use neighbourhood with a total GFA of 790.000 m²
The industrial site at Ryazanskiy prospect will be transformed into a new mixed use neighbourhood that will greatly profit from public transport connectivity through an adjacent metro station at its north-eastern corner of the site. The masterplan proposed responds to the location and its constraints and the program equally. Two open space bands building a cross shape respect the site’s heritage structures and make room for public facilities located within them. Around this open space, 4 neighbourhoods have been proposed, each one with a different mix between residential and commercial program. The two quarters facing Ryazanskiy Prospekt, one of the big arterials roads of Moscow house more office, retail and small apartments while the calmer parts of the site are dedicated to family living.
The routing to the site and on the site has been crafted in such a way, that even the remoter areas are within walking distance from public transport hubs and that safe routes to schools can be provided for children.
