Danilovsky Fort Business Centre
This business centre is composed of three vertically-oriented volumes, based on a single-storey, flat ground floor. The clear and rational layout idea is softened by the complicated plastic forms of the fašades. The active rhythm of differently-sized windows that accrues and fades, relieves the monotony inherent to the architecture of many business centres. The outlines of the fašade windows stress the main peculiarity of the building: indented walls that give a graceful curve to the main fašade overlooking the riverside. The two glazed consoles protruding from opposite brick towers aspire to meet each other, thus uniting the whole structure. Decorative brick of irregularly varying shades and tones is used for all fašades. The brick mass of the whole complex soars above the ground floor structure because of its glass-filled outer walls. The whole composition enabled to create an inner yard on the roof of the ground floor, where an artificial hill can be found.
