Saint Petersburg, Russia — 2017

«Pearl Marina» Residential Block

The comfort class «Pearl Harbor» Residential Сomplex is located along the Dudergofsky Canal, just minutes away by foot from the Gulf of Finland.

The new building fits well with the style of the Baltic Pearl microdistrict in its vicinity. This district in the South-West of St. Petersburg fits well with the atmosphere of a very special and atypical sea resort, with added architectural elements and approaches.

The composition of the building follows the original motifs of modern architecture and combines the elements of constructivism, eco design, and minimalism.

«Pearl Harbor» consists of four ten-storied buildings with a common underground parking lot. The first floor in building No. 4 will house in-built commercial premises – stores and offices. The curtain wall of the facade, made of ceramic granite is of white, light-gray and dark-gray colors.

The positioning of the buildings follows the axial composition of the site, which also corresponds to the urban planning logic of the planning area. The sections of the building form a sequence of four traditional St. Petersburg courtyards, characteristic for the downtown area, with a path through the territory and along the stylobate.

This residential complex has a large number of advantages that will satisfy even most discerning residents of Russia’s Northern capital:
- Clean air will be provided by many green zones of the district. The Yuzhno-Primorsky Park (South Seaside Park) with a large recreation and entertainment zone is also located in the vicinity.

- Each apartment has an insulated balcony or loggia (1.5 m wide), the balconies and loggias are glazed according to the stained glass design.
- The apartments have been fitted with high quality double-glazed windows with the micro-ventilation and airing systems. Window blocks and balcony doors have been made of plastic-metal composite material.
- The project of the residential building includes a parking garage for 423 cars – as well as open air fenced parking lots for residents of the building.
