Large-scale residential complex "SYMBOL" from "Donstroy" developer covers an area of about 60 hectares, limited with Zolotorozhsky str., Enthusiastov highway and Zavoda Serp i Molot str., on the border with the Central Administrative District of Moscow. The general plan of the renovation of the former industrial area was developed as a result of international competition by the British Office LDA Design (2014). Architectural workshop "Atrium" is responsible for the design of the first stage of the residential complex.
The planned complex consists of five separate buildings. Buildings are divided into two types: the high-rise (21 - 27 floors) and the mid-rise (floors 5-17). Rounded shapes and variable altitude of buildings form an expressive and picturesque silhouette of the complex, and pronounced smooth lines on the facades inform it extra dynamism. The diagonal plate in the low-rise sections connect the different levels, strengthening the unity of the architectural image. The upper levels of high-sections "chamfered" at an angle that creates an impression of continuity and "growing" shape of the building.
Compositionally, all the buildings are concentrated around the boulevard, which will subsequently become part of the "Green River", that is to connect residential courtyards with public spaces of cultural and social clusters (plantings takes about 40% of the quarter). The first floor will house entrances of houses and business premises, intended mainly for placement of infrastructure. Visually it will unite the two parts of the boulevard, and work to solve the main task - to create a diverse urban landscape. However, first of all architects of "Atrium" form it with the original volume using solutions and facades' graphics.
