The historic Moscow Metro Station will soon feature an adjacent multipurpose park proposed by 5+design that will provide extensive retail and greenspace that will engage travellers in the area.
The design for Paveletskaya Place includes a shopping mall, programmable plazas, restaurants, event terraces, greenspaces and pedestrian walkways.
Highlighting the public realm, the 73,000 square metre “park-integrated mall” is situated in the Zamoskvorechye District of Moscow, and will be experienced by travellers of the nearby metro and rail stations, and passersby. The urban square has been designed to accommodate and provide for the continuous flow of pedestrians entering from all side. The design generates natural connections with the different surrounding components. Greenspaces, meandering pathways and skylights function on different levels to create a dynamic atmosphere.
5+design, the international architecture and planning practice with studios in Hollywood, Shanghai, and Dubai, created a system of layers in order to “accentuate the interconnected spaces that activate the public realm near street level…[with] sunken plazas and stepped gardens [that] meet with elevated, cantilevered lawns and sculptural covered spaces”.
The glass-topped atrium will cover an extensive array of retail and eateries, named the Fashion Atrium and Food Hall Atrium. Large skylights will highlight the spaces below these areas, allowing natural light to penetrate through. Interior and exterior are merged in the larger of the two atrium spaces, with a flowing landscape from the retail levels to the park. image
