I’m quarter is located in a prestigious district of Moscow not far from the Garden Ring Road. Two new elegant buildings of 6 and 7 stories, accordingly, are a residential house and an apartment complex, and they seamlessly blend into the atmosphere of the capital districts with their age-long history. The windows of the flats offer a breathtaking view over the Moskva River shore front.
The authors of the project were designers and architects of Apex bureau, who worked in collaboration with British specialists from David Walker Architects Ltd and Dutch architects from MLA+. Together they managed to make the dream of cozy space for life and recreation in the center of a megalopolis come true.
There are Italian motives in the exterior design of these respectable buildings, as there are porticos and columns on the two lower floors. This makes the houses look harmonic and well-proportioned, adds them featheriness and aeriality. Thanks to the connecting arcades the residents of the prestigious quarter can move around its premises without going out.
To decorate the façade, the architects opted for bricks of three noble shades: beige, chocolate and intense red. Original lighting accentuates the strict classical façade style in darkness.
One more peculiar feature of the quarter is the combination of French balconies and panoramic windows from the floor to the ceiling. Noise reducing IGUs are fitted with multifunctional Guardian SunGuard® Neutral 70 HT glass of neutral colour and medium reflectivity. It provides a perfect combination of transparency, energy efficiency and solar protection characteristics.
French windows are bigger than their average analogues, which means that the inner premises are more exposed to outdoor noise and scorching sun rays in the summer months, and to cold air from the street in winter. In this case modern glass with its special protective features is of great significance. SunGuard coated glass not only helps implement the brightest ideas of designers and architects, but also allows I’M residents live in comfort, enjoying silence and serenity.
On the territory of the quarter there is a garden with a fountain and flower beds. The residents enjoy the underground parking area, a private kindergarten and even a private “club”, where family holidays can be celebrated and business meetings can be arranged.
