Brusnika：Located in the centre of Yekaterinburg, Kandinsky is an apartment building sharing residential and business functions. Sited in the historic area, it neighbours the renovated Iset riverfront. In addition to its signature architecture, the project features an attractively landscaped courtyard and a green roof.
The development concept is built around the interaction of architecture and the surrounding landscape. A uniform composition is achieved by specially designed homogeneous geometry, inspired by the art of the renowned Russian artist Vassily Kandinsky. The geometric pattern is mirrored in the architecture, the house lobby and its landscape. The project landscape creates a unique environment comprising 30 species of plants, smoothly transitioning from summer to autumn, from winter to spring. The density and combination of plants gives variety to the courtyard by enriching each season with a different colour scheme.
Kandinsky is made up of 2 buildings of varying heights: a 17-storey residential tower and a 5-storey office block. The difference in heights has permitted to design a communal terrace for the house residents. Acting as a fifth facade, the roof of the lower office block has been transformed into a garden planted with mature Scots and mugo pines, and medlar trees. The roof is designed to maximise efficiency in the use of space. A wooden, larch-clad terrace comprises a small amphitheatre, a playground with a sandpit and individual recreational spots, devised for fitness and yoga practice in summer. The terrace can be accessed from the sixth floor of the residential building.
Planted with mature, 8-metre tall trees, the terrace and the courtyard benefit from the optimal greenery volume and density. This solution contributed to a ready-made landscape design, with no need for the house residents to wait for another 5 to 10 years to see the trees and shrubs grow. All the plants were delivered from Lorberg and Lappen, nurseries located in Europe.
The area around Kandinsky is segmented into the private zone, limited to house residents, and the public space, available for all city-dwellers. The private part is paved with dark gabbro granite, also used in facade finishes, and is complete with small larch pergolas, street furniture. It is densely planted with medlars, pines, thujas, apple and lime trees and shrubs, such as mugo pines, cotoneasters, spiraeas, roses, grape vines, Japanese sedges and hydrangeas. The paved public area comprises sparsely spaced trees and hedges, which blend into the cityscape and form a green belt around the house, protecting it from noise and dust.
