RMJM begins defence of St Petersburg tower

  • Comment

RMJM has released new images detailing the potential impact of its new 394m-tall Okhta Tower in Russia’s picturesque St Petersburg.

The practice was asked to supply new evidence to appease world-heritage body UNESCO, which has demanded a report on the building’s impact to be submitted by February.

When built, the building will become Europe’s tallest tower as well as the new headquarters for Russian oil and gas company Gazprom.

According to Tony Kettle, RMJM’s group design director, the design team took into consideration St Petersburg’s urban landscape of horizontal buildings broken by singular vertical elements, such as the spires of the Peter and Paul Cathedral.
