Gross Building Area
Krasnodar Terraces is a mixed-use development that houses shopping center, fitness center, high street retail, office block and residence blocks with terraces and roof gardens. The project site is composed of three parcels that are separated by traffic streets. The existing use of the site is open-air market place at the center of the city. The inefficient use of the site and unattractive image is to be replaced by a mixed use center. The existing building is re-designed as a retail center composed of retail units as shops and cafes; in addition to indoor and open-air car parking that would serve to the whole complex. The goal will be to articulate the existing building functionally and architecturally to the general design of the mixed-use development.
The second parcel is functionally planned as consisting of residences, shopping center and fitness center. The high-rise blocks are designed as terraced residences which serve as green gardens with the city view. The shopping center is planned with an oval shaped circulation pattern. The roof of the shopping center is designed as green roof with a fitness center.
The third parcel is composed of retail units on the ground floor towards the shopping center direction. The upper floors are planned as office and residence units. The terrace typology is continued at the design of the complex. Large glass surfaces for light illumination are located to the south direction.
