Khanty Mansiysk Building

Design: Foster + Partners, UK
Khanty Mansiysk Siberia
Piercing the skyline and rising above the Russian city of Khanty Mansyisk, this mixed-use scheme will create an elegant and crystalline landmark, providing crucial new amenities for its citizens – a place for living, working and leisure, sheltered from the harsh Siberian climate.
Set high on a hill, in a densely wooded area, the 280m tall tower is facetted like a cut diamond, designed to maximise daylight through the winter months, reflecting and refracting natural light to illuminate the interior spaces.
The design of the Khanty Mansiysk tower is informed by the most stringent principles of sustainable design and will be an exemplar for future development in the region. Key to the environmental performance of the building are its south facing atria, which maximises daylight and solar gain, thus reducing the reliance on artificial lighting and heating through the cold winter months. The building will also include renewable energy sources and combined heat and power generation to maximise energy efficiency. Its delicate footprint is indicative of the environmentally sensitive design and will leave much of the site in its natural condition.
The Khanty Mansiysk tower rises between two podium buildings which house a rich mix of residential, office, hotel and retail accommodation, so that the entire scheme will be animated day-long. At the tower’s summit, a viewing platform and restaurant will offer panoramic views over the city and its surroundings.
