Contest launched for Roman Abramovich office block in Moscow

  • Comment

An international design competition has been launched to overhaul a public arcade inside Roman Abramovich’s White Gardens office complex in Moscow

The competition – organised by ProjectNext and open to architects, engineers and designers – seeks ideas to upgrade an 800m² glass-roofed area.

Planned to complete next year, the project will transform the lobby – which currently featuring restaurants, cafes, and bars – into a ‘popular and attractive urban environment’.

Designed by APA Wojciechowski Architects, the 64,000m² building was purchased by the Chelsea Football Club owner’s property outfit Millhouse two years ago.

According to the brief: ‘Participants in the competition are asked to generate ideas and proposals for organizing the arcade space and for helping people find their way to arcade, with the aim of creating a new comfortable environment which people will find it interesting to visit.’

Shortlisted teams will present their schemes to the jury on 10 February and the winner of the design contract will be announced later the same month.

Judges include Scott Brownrigg chief executive Darren Comber, Szymon Wojciechowski of APA Wojciechowski and Elena Malinovskaya of Millhouse.

Malinovskaya commented: ‘We hope to turn Arcade into a new attraction on the map of the capital. Our aim is to create an active, modern, and comfortable urban space not just for people working at the business center, but also for all citizens of Moscow.’

The deadline for submissions is 7 February.
