The project aims to solve the problem of regeneration of the territory of the former factory AREMKUZ.
The industrial complex is located in the southern part of the city of Moscow on the ground between the many buildings; The land is bounded by Kojevnicheskaya Street to the north by 1st Kojevnicheskiy Street to the south and west and via the 2nd Kojevnicheskiy Street to the east.
This part of Moscow began its development in the XVII century following the outsourcing of the factories of the city, including tanners. For several centuries it was the district of tanners; Two historic buildings of the 17th and 18th centuries are attached to the factory in question; In addition, the Church of the Holy Trinity built in the XVII century is located in the center of the district. Since the middle of the 20th century, the site has been occupied by the premises of the AREMKUZ vehicle repair center. Nowadays, the buildings of the factory are in a state of emergency, besides the constructions of the years 1970 are disharmonious in front of their entourage. The owner of the center, the company "Mosgortrans" decided to relocate the center and build a business and shopping center in its place.
The project includes the rehabilitation of the old boundaries of the church grounds and the construction of two buildings: a business center to the north and one of the centers of the University of Psychology and Pedagogy of Moscow.
In keeping with the new mass plan, the new buildings become a sort of "flank" of the church. This position and the height restrictions allowed us to develop the project. Despite the dominant functional role of these new constructions for the district, they should submit to the building of the entourage dating from the XVII-XVIII century and forming the main line of the street Kojevnicheskaya with the church as dominant of the composition. The vertical glass and metal elements are designed to standardize the fa?ades of buildings with different functions and to create a neutral and rhythmic background design to enhance the historic buildings. Due to the high building density, the fa?ade lines are skewed to allow better insolation and brightness. The finishing of the facades with a specific painting of the chameleon type would make it possible to have the effect of a surface in perpetual mutation.
