New lovemark of Kiev: about the architectural concept of ANDRIYIVSKY City Space

02.02.

2022

How to build in historic districts? This is an eternal question that divides people into two groups. The first one stands for houses with stucco and columns. The second one believes that pseudo-historical architecture harms the city and residents, has nothing to do with the past and only misleads.

SAGA Development supports the second position. That's why ANDRIYIVSKY City Space has no towers, a belvedere and other pseudo-historical devices, its architecture will be timeless and, despite the trends, will remain the love mark of the capital.

ANDRIYIVSKY City Space is a reconstruction of an unfinished building from the middle of the 2000s, which in the first versions was made "antique": with columns, facades and towers. Once in the hands of our architect and freed from the archaic patina, this house was out of fashion. It has become a precious stone, the edges of which shone thanks to the architect Alexei Pakhomov from BURØ architects.

He appreciated the scale of the drama unfolding in Podil and offered modern solutions to each seemingly overwhelming task.

Court-doner solution. We noticed that initially the facade of the house was drawn up to the red line, but for some reason the architects abandoned this idea. As a result, the court-doner was formed, the so-called front section of the courtyard in front of the front facade of historical buildings. Today, this solution is practically not used in architecture.

We planned a space for a cafe and retail on the ground floor, so already at the pre-final stage of launching the house, the first levels can be active. Entrance to commercial premises - from Andreevskaya street. By the way, active facades at street level, the creation of new pedestrian routes or the rethinking of existing ones are main features of all SAGA Development projects.

Cut off all extra. In the previous architectural version of the house, there were many ledges, bay windows, towers and attics. Behind this jewelry it is difficult to see the levels and clear edges of ANDRIYIVSKY City Space. Therefore, we left the logic of the frame and cut off the excess. We divided the disproportionate large window openings into rhythmic squares with pylons. Added glass. Created edges.

Rethinking the interior. The entire volume of the building at the very beginning was designed as a commercial one. As a result, rooms without windows appeared inside it. During the development of the project, we had to play with the space, thinking about how to make it comfortable and with the right level of insolation - both for those who buy an office and for those who purchase apartments in ANDRIYIVSKY City Space.

For our complex, we took as a basis the European mixed-use format, which is still considered a rarity for Ukraine. 25% is occupied by apartments - we have designed 16 residential three- and four-room premises. 75% are co-working spaces, offices, cafes and retail. Now the interior space has a free layout and, in general, a new sense of proportionality of the building to the person has appeared, this feeling is difficult to explain in words, it must be felt on the spot.

We use natural materials. For the exterior decoration of the house, we use gabbro - a rock of Ukrainian origin. We will polish some of the stone blocks, and leave the rest with a raw texture. This technique will give the house texture and expressiveness. During the day, the light and shadows on the façade will create a dynamic pattern. Railings, profiles and fittings on the façade will be made of steel anodized to look like green, slightly patinated brass.

History reference. In the late 90s and early 2000s, architects in Kiev tried to follow the recommendations of the Office for the Protection of Cultural Heritage and use as many traditional elements of 19th century architecture as possible. There are no official directives for this, but this was the unspoken rule of the capital's architects, who believed that pseudo-historical decisions allow projects to be approved by the city council. At the same time, UNESCO adopts the "Vienna Memorandum" (2005), which clearly condemns pseudo-historicism, noting that the tendency to "build as historically as possible" undermines the authority of real architectural monuments. Europe and the United States instantly and unambiguously recognized pseudo-historicism as a symptom of stylistic unscrupulousness and decline.
