kleinewelt architekten's mixed-use development in moscow draws from italian palazzos

kleinewelt architekten has drawn from historical russian chambers and italian palazzos for allegoria mosca, a new mixed-use development in the center of moscow. combining cultural and social care functions, the project incorporates a residential building, a piazzetta – which will house an open-air art space – a special 1700 sqm transformable exhibition hall underneath it, as well as conference and lecture halls and an underground parking.

following extensive research, kleinewelt architekten has developed the form and aesthetics of the new complex to reflect the location’s multiple historical layers. restoration works are to be carried out for the existing chambers on the plot, while a new apartment building and a museum space will be constructed with respect to the surrounding architecture. unrefined, natural materials will be used for the main building, including raw natural stone, brass, and giant glass slabs.

other facilities in allegoria mosca will include an exhibition space under the museum square; a building which will house children’s workshops, studios and art residences; an art gallery; and a center for the study and future development of moscow. a total of 67 apartments will be located in the complex, 32 of which of are two-level, while all will come with a total area between 50 to 100 m2, and different types of layouts, from penthouses to free planning. kleinewelt architekten is responsible for the development of the architectural design of the project at all its stages and for the exterior and interior of all buildings.
