The implementation of the residential complex “
Garden Quarters”, the design code and architectural concept of which were proposed by Sergei Skuratov. Today it is one of the most famous projects in the capital and the largest property on the Moscow real estate market. The central element of the complex is a large city square with a green park and an artificial pond, which serves as a reminder of the city ponds that existed here since the times of Peter the Great. Sixteen residential tower houses and a low school building are concentrated around the square. In total, the residential complex includes thirty-four residential buildings, some of which are grouped into four quarters with private courtyards.
Famous Moscow architects, as well as a huge number of manufacturing companies, took part in the work on such a large project (the territory of the complex is 11.1 hectares, half of which is given to greenery; usable area is at least 416 thousand square meters). A significant role was played by the company "OrtOst-Fasad", which offered an innovative and at the same time simple solution of the author's idea.
The entire gigantic complex looks like a single town-planning ensemble, not only thanks to the author's architectural solutions and techniques, the use of a single facade rhythm for all buildings and a developed design code that clearly regulates the height, dimensions and functional purpose of the Garden Quarters buildings.
As we already wrote, the decisive role in creating a readable and recognizable image was played by the main finishing material - brick. The design code developed by Sergey Skuratov initially assigned this finishing material to the facades of buildings, which proportionally occupies more than 70% of the entire non-glazed plane of the facades.
In many ways, this decision was dictated by the history of the place - earlier, in the middle of the 17th century, there were "brick sheds" on this site, in which bricks with a special stamp in the form of a two-headed eagle were burned. In addition, the appearance of the complex reacted to the proximity of a building preserved inside the complex, built at the beginning of the 20th century by Roman Klein: it is faced with dark bricks of four different shades with decorative inserts of light stone and rusticated plaster.
Paying tribute to the past, Sergei Skuratov proposed to decorate all four residential courtyards with dark bricks from the outside: presumably German clinker, Dutch or Belgian hand-molded bricks. To create a dynamic and voluminous canvas of walls, eight shades of bricks of various complex textures were carefully selected from the Hagemeister plant, which was supplied by the Kirill company. The tone of the brick smoothly changes from light terracotta at the top to almost black at the bottom of the walls.
In the decoration of the inner facades of the courtyards, brick is used as an auxiliary material, there is not much of it on the inner facades, but brick is present in the elements of the improvement. On the other hand, brick does not prevail on all facades: the architecture of some residential buildings, as well as of both business centers, combines brick with glass and metal: copper, zinc, Corten steel - their texture contrastingly sets off the warm surface of the brick.
Difficulties in the implementation of the author's idea were caused, in particular, by three-dimensional concrete elements, which had to be faced with full-size bricks. Initially, it was assumed that these elements would be manufactured by a German clinker brick manufacturer according to the architect's project. However, the 15 cm wide parts turned out to be so heavy that their delivery from Germany would become very difficult and ruinous for the developer, and installation would be simply impossible.
A way out of the situation was proposed by the company "OrtOst-Fasad": modern, reliable and lightweight material - fiberglass concrete, about the merits of which we have already talked about, allowed to finish the pylons and lintels of buildings. Clinker tiles on a metal frame were integrated into GRC, which made it possible to significantly reduce the weight of the elements and reduce the cost of their installation, abandoning the use of construction equipment for lifting the elements. The unique properties of the material made it possible, without compromising the architecture and operational characteristics of the building, to replace the full-size brick with clinker tiles with a thickness of only 25 mm, which again significantly reduced the weight of the parts.
Both the customer, who was able to avoid additional expenses for expensive transportation and installation, and the architect, who fully realized his concept, were satisfied with the decision. And this is not to mention the implementation time, which was significantly reduced thanks to the use of glass fiber reinforced concrete. *** The company "ORTOST Facade" has been working in the market of architectural decor for seventeen years and is the largest and most experienced manufacturer and supplier of decorative facade elements made of glass fiber reinforced concrete in Russia, having completed more than 100 objects of varying degrees of complexity. The company has its own staff of designers, its own production complex, as well as its own working and engineering personnel., which allows us to implement projects of any scale and complexity in the shortest possible time. According to experts, the production base "ORTOST Facade" occupies about 50% of the market for the annual production of decorative elements made of glass fiber reinforced concrete in Russia.
The company, on its own, carries out a full range of works on decorative elements made of glass fiber reinforced concrete at the Sadovye Kvartaly facility - from detailed design to the commissioning of the completed work.
The company "ORTOST Fasad" has all the necessary set of SRO permits (for the performance of work, design and survey work), as well as a license from the FSB of Russia to perform work related to the use of information constituting a state secret. Besides, "ORTOST Facade" has the only valid technical certificate of the Federal Center for Strategic Studies of the Russian Federation for a system with glass fiber reinforced concrete products for use on building facades… In 2014, she received a License for the right to work with architectural monuments.
