PRP has won its first major international design competition - for a residential development on the outskirts of Moscow.
The scheme, 'Rublevo Residence', will be made up of 134 new homes and a fitness centre on an ecologically sensitive site.
The project's brief was to create a 'luxurious gated community' in the wooded area.
The initial proposal provides 134 large dwellings: 52 'standard-house types' of 300 m 2
per dwelling and 82 end-house types, each of which will be 328 m 2
The townhouse heights have been limited to two storeys and the individual houses are arranged in groups of two, three and four, with larger units in prime-end positions.
The practice said the winning element of its designs was a tall stone wall, which divides the properties and creates privacy for each one by extending beyond the building line and into the forest. by Ed Dorrell
