The settlement is settled according to all the rules of modern gerontology: when finishing work, a person should not go to a nursing home, but to an idyllic place where the remaining years can be spent as he wants, actively and with pleasure - and only when an active life is already difficult, trust medical supervision.
Accordingly, the village is divided into two parts - on one side of the main road there is a hospital and buildings for those who need medical care, and the second part of the territory, a large one, is occupied by cottages for younger residents - in fact, in this part the architects made an attempt to implement your own version of utopia - to plan a settlement for an idyllic life.
The essence of the idyll lies in an attempt to combine the comfort of modern housing, so that it is convenient, with the romance of a medieval city, so that it is not boring. Houses with shops and workshops are planned on the central street, where you can live with your small business or craft. This reminds at the same time the classical structure of a medieval European city and the dream of a Soviet man of the era of perestroika to start his own business and live in his own house. On a national scale, the dream was not destined to come true - maybe here it will be possible to realize it in the form of an extract, without immersing your favorite topic in the realities of post-industrial society, and even more so in the post-Soviet space. Here, in the “veteran” village, there should be no economic or other problems, since people are supposed to have already worked for Gazprom, here they rest and do what they love, “maybe even selling something to each other”, solely for the sake of pleasure, and not for the purpose of making a profit. “Communication is the connecting link of all functional processes (rest, work, life) organized here in the tradition of a classic ideal city,” says the architect.
This turns into a dramatization of the Middle Ages, from which everything heavy is excluded, and what remains is a church and a village with briskly bending streets, streets and houses, echoing the river bed, which, when viewed from above, form a whimsical dance. “In old settlements, houses often took a forced form, stood on crooked streets and gradually transformed themselves,” explains one of the authors of the project, Konstantin Savkin.
In addition to doing small business, residents will be able to plant flowers, a vegetable garden and pigeons at their cottages, receive guests - small houses are provided for them from the river side. A boat dock and a restaurant are planned on the bank of the river, a stadium and a parking lot at the entrance, since all cars are planned to be left at the entrance and only environmentally friendly official transport will be used inside.
