A unified principle of individual architecture was laid down.
The entire development is divided into 10 types, which in different combinations with each other and in the case of the use of different materials, create an infinite number of options. In this way, a genetic code emerges within which it is possible to choose modules for a specific situation without fear of monotony.
The competition, from the idea to the development of the facade typology, was carried out in collaboration with Petitdidierprioux Arсhitectes
. The goal of the renovation project was to return diversity to the development, preserving the integrity of the urban environment. It is important to move away from standardized residential blocks, which are scaled to the entire urban area.
We had to create a complex, colorful diversity, which is harmoniously and holistically laid on a single basis.

The map of Moscow is like a mosaic. It is heterogeneous like a patchwork blanket, made up of different fragments. In the center there is a diverse architectural and colorful historical core, surrounded by standardized residential districts in which diversity and the spirit of place have disappeared.
The area of the Tsaritsyno district, taking into account the development under the renovation program, is a complex development with a predominant amount of new construction.
The remaining housing stock consists mainly of typical residential buildings, the facades of which need to be reconstructed using the developed design code.
The design proposal aims to create a new, individual and memorable image of the area.
The architecture proposed in the competition is responsive to the historic urban environment that forms it - the proximity to Tsaritsyno Park, the space around the recently restored Elbrus Cinema, which will be an important point of attraction for residents.
The historical preserve and the railway station located on this site refer us to a particular color scheme and materials, so they must necessarily be taken into account in the design.
It is extremely important to restore the ability of the resident to identify himself with his home and the surrounding development, and then the human connection to his place will become more real and tangible.
This principle will bring dialogue into the urban environment, make it evident that one district is different from another, and bring back the lost "human scale," so important for a harmonious sense of oneself in space. Each district will be endowed with its own unique visual design code, which must be taken into account in the further development of the facades.
