Konyushennaya Square

St.Petersburg, Russia

Renovation of Konyushennaya Square includes the creation of recreational areas, traffic optimization and complete landscaping.
Squares of Saint Petersburg have rich history. During the years of their existence they have witnessed a lot of events, full of greatness and dramatism. Some squares have disappeared, giving floor to modern architecture, however many of them still exist nearly untouched, in the way they were initially designed by the genius architects of the past. The open space of the square and its location form an ideal 24-hour space, where people would gather day and night. The scale and boundaries can be formed using modules with formed bush whereas the natural environment serves to achieve balance between the artificial and manmade components of the space. Partial isolation of the space serves for the needs of restaurants and boutiques.
