BUILDING OF THE STATE DUMA OF THE RUSSAIN FEDERATION

Address:  1, Okhotny Ryad Street, Moscow

Design — 1994
Realization — ???

 

The building is situated in the area of complicated city planning, within the quarter; and is practically not visible from the street. Besides, a small building by Shekhtel which had to be preserved is located in the same yard. Despite these difficulties, the authors have made architecturally expressive construction which is beautifully designed both in general, and in details. The project is executed in the forms adapted to the image of the Morflot building with stands on the building line of Rakhmanovsky Lane. Considering the narrow environment, «light exposures» are provided for the project; that means that the building responsively reacts to short sunshine. Roof designs, various transitions, and ladders are interestingly conceived. The project was embodied by Russian builders.

Technical and economic performance:

  • Total area — 104 000 m²
  • Total structural volume — 520 000 m³
Object category: Government facilities
