The overall composition of the complex consists of two buildings – “wings”, allowing the efficient usage of the designed volume and reflecting the specific purpose of the United Aviaconstruction Corporation (UAC). Conjunction of glass and aluminum, a volatile metal, ensures the visual lightness of the construction that echoes with airplanes on the nearby airfield. The observation deck located on the roof of the construction is turned towards the airfield, allowing visitors and employees the best viewpoint of the surroundings. The 3-storeyed stylobate with an atrium, a conference-hall and a canteen unites together the area where the two “wings” come together, living the autonomy of usage for each one of them. Сomposition of the construction reflects the trapezoidal shape of the building plot. Symmetrical structure of buildings combined with the classical architectural approach give to modernistic shapes a solemn look.
