The £75m project is located in a formal parkland setting, along Kurortny Prospekt, the main boulevard through Sochi, and in a prominent elevated position, overlooking the main harbour and marina. This prime site provides a landmark development location, as a symbolic gateway to the city and a beacon to the coast line frontage.

The mixed use scheme comprises a two-level elevated plinth including a retail/entertainment complex, over three levels of basement, with two slinky-like 19-storey towers of serviced apartments above. The retail /entertainment element, that is required in the brief, cleverly uses the section to house the cinema within a half basement level to reduce the impact of the development on the parkland surroundings. The design intent is to incorporate the sloping park landscape, as a series of terraces for outdoor eating on the roof and in the complex restaurant level. In this manner the public routes from the park and through to the marina become the public malls at ground and roof level of the development.

The two towers proposed provide accommodation for 220 serviced apartments, ranging from 90m2 through to 360m2 penthouses on the upper levels.

Tanya Kalinina, a director of McAdam, says: “The slinky aesthetic of the irregular stacked radial plan, allows for space maximisation, and unique balcony and unit configurations for all-round views. There is also the benefit of deep shading elements to glazed apartment fronts, which are potentially configured to the path of the sun and the towers’ proximity to one another.”

“The wavy nature of the white balconies against set-back glazing also makes a gentle maritime reference” she adds.
