News > New residential towers in Perm, Siberia

29 August 2016

These images [left] show the construction progress of our concept design [below] for the three 25 storey premium class residential towers in Perm, Russia designed by the London studio with Moscow’s local support.  The towers sit above a mixed-use podium that creates a new retail presence at street level, with a kindergarten and public landscape above and offices wrapping around the street edges.

The site offers 360 degree views to river, mountains and the city.  The first phase is on site and is starting to reveal its elegant and articulated massing, the second to follow with two further towers and additional mixed uses at street level.

The 42,000sqm development will mark a new standard of residential accommodation and design in a key location in Perm, an emerging city of culture attracting high profile international architecture teams. Environmentally Perm has temperature swings from +35˚ to –35˚creating extreme challenges for façade design, and a national regulation requires provision of 2 hours of sunlight for each primary living space which informs and shapes the slender tower designs.
