Bereg Residential Area
Kazan, Russian Federation
This project aims to reorganise the right bank of the Kazanka River as a fitting counterpart for Kazan’s historical centre and the Kazan Kremlin, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, on the opposite bank. It comprises five apartment buildings varying in height from 7 to 22 storeys, each sitting on a stylobate containing offices and shops. The buildings face the river, framing courts containing children’s playgrounds and general recreation areas and leading down to a new walkway along the embankment. While the two-storey stylobate is clad in granite, the apartments are faced in brick with white cornices and plenty of glass to open up panoramic views.
