Moscow: Two Chapman Taylor projects win awards in Russia

Two Chapman Taylor designed schemes, Fort Tower and Port Nakhoda have collected awards at the CRE Saint Petersburg & Federal Awards 2017.

The annual professional Commercial Real Estate Awards were founded in 2003 and are now most significant and prestigious industry event within Moscow. 

Fort Tower, which is located on Moskovskiy Prospekt, one of Saint Petersburg’s main axial routes leading directly into the heart of the historic city centre, won Business Centre of A class. The landmark project sits on a prominent site and has a 21-storey tower in a city where most buildings are below 10 storeys.  It delivers 24,600m² (GLA) of Grade A office space, as well as containing a number of retail and catering offers around the base of its entrance atrium space. The tower is supported by two-levels of basement car parking and is conveniently located for a Metro Station and bus routes. The strong public transport links helped achieve the required LEED Silver certification for the Tower.

The second award went to Port Nakhodka (pictured) for Best Small Shopping Centre, a retail and transport interchange development in St. Petersburg.  Chapman Taylor initially undertook a planning exercise to integrate new accommodation within the existing buildings, this then developed through façade and landscape design, logo/branding design and finally interior design packages. In recognition of these strong transport links both façade and interior design concepts have drawn heavily on railway iconography to generate elements such as the clock-tower alongside the main entrance and the angled metal façade cladding reminiscent of locomotive styling. Internally this theme continues with shop front pilasters modelled like railway signals, metal inserts in the floor tiling like the patterns of a railway track and the ceilings reflecting railway station canopies.
