30.07.2015 ----- CU Reserve To Build the Head-quarters of the Russian Olympic Committee

The design project by CU “RESERVE” has won the 1st Prize in a restricted architectural and urban planning competition to design the new Centre of Russian Union of public sporting associations, or the ‘Russian Olympic Committee’ - ROC (8, Louzhnetskaya embankment, Moscow). The competition has been organized by the State Unitary Enterprise “Genplan Institute of Moscow” with the support of the Moscow Architectural and Urban planning Committee. The new Head-quarters will be built on the plot of the existing offices of the ROC (to be demolished), situated on the Louzhnetskaya embankment next to the bend of the Moscow-river. The client’s request to design a composition of two independent volumes in one uniformed building with a common space has predetermined the main idea of the architectural solution: two separate office blocks with a ‘cabinet’ and‘open-space’ interior organizational systems, both united by an entrance atrium opened towards the river as well as the Moscow State University and Vorobjovy Gory Park. The image of the building has also been determined by the choice of materials as well as by elevations solutions. Different interior organizational structures are hidden from the outside by a unified elevation grid made of a natural stone that echoes the scale of sporting facilities of the Louzhniki complex and emphasizes the administrative function of the building. The relief metal structure of warm golden shades in the atrium forms an indirect visual link with the building of the Academy of Sciences, and at the same time creates an impressing public space recalling the essence of the Olympic movement – the idea of unity and the high recognition of sporting achievements.

Architects of the awarded project: Vladimir Plotkin, Alexey Borodushkin, Anton Chalov, Denis Chernov, Irina Gorelova, Olga Kolbas, Nikolay Lyzlov, Alexander Neznamov, Oksana Slinchenko, Kirill Tolkachev, Svetlana Vasina
