Saint Petersburg, Russia — 2006

«Slavburg» Residential Complex

The complex consists of three buildings — two 17-storey monolithic brick «towers» with a common first floor and a brick seven-entrance building of the same height. The supporting structure of the «towers» is a frame in monolithic structures with longitudinal and transverse crossbars, rigidly connected to columns and walls. The choice of construction of the ground and first floors was largely influenced by complex hydrogeological conditions — both floors are made in monolith. To insulate the façade various technologies were used: a ventilated facade with ceramic granite, and where loggias and balconies are concentrated on the outer surface of the walls plaster facades are made with insulation. It is interesting to solve the evacuation and transition stairs, balcony nodes placed on the facade.
