This year it is planned to commission the fourth stage of the elite residential quarter "Novy Gorod" in St. Petersburg. The design of the building facades was developed by leading Russian experts - Sergei Tchoban and the workshop "Evgeny Gerasimov and Partners". There are no such facades, which were conceived by architects, not only in St. Petersburg, but also in Russia. For the implementation of non-trivial creative ideas, the most modern materials were chosen, combining an attractive appearance, manufacturability and a long service life. For example, the cladding of one of the buildings is made with the use of ROCKPANEL wood wool fireproof panels of the Woods series, imitating the texture of wood.
The main goal in the implementation of the complex residential development project was to create a new, attractive environment for a comfortable and safe high quality city life. Therefore, when designing the facades of new residential buildings, many nuances were taken into account. The architectural solution was supposed to be modern, but at the same time organically fit into the surrounding space of the historical center of the Northern capital. It was required that the facing material did not lose its properties over time: it could withstand the windy and humid weather characteristic of St. Petersburg, while retaining its color under the influence of ultraviolet radiation. In addition, the Novy Gorod multifunctional complex belongs to the premium segment of housing and office space, so the most modern and high-quality materials were needed.
The ROCKPANEL cladding facade panels of the Woods series in the Mahogany shade from the ROCKWOOL company were able to satisfy the requirements of the discerning customer. The material is an effective and durable alternative to natural wood, the panels are easy to install, and their service life is at least 50 years. The paneling is self-cleaning and resistant to atmospheric agents, so the new residential complex will look dignified at any time of the year and in any weather.
“The architects developed the project, chose the materials, but, as is often the case with the implementation of unique projects, during the installation process it is necessary to adapt the existing concept to the real conditions, difficulties arise. Our 19 years of experience in construction and, of course, the excellent characteristics of ROCKPANEL cladding panels helped to cope, - says Vadim Alekseev, CEO and founder of FS-TRADING, a contractor for facade works in the Novy Gorod residential complex. - The ROCKPANEL material is lightweight, it is good to work with it on the facade, trying one or another solution. It is convenient to cut the panel directly on the object, adjusting it to the required dimensions. The cladding is durable and easy to attach, so the ROCKPANEL is installed much faster than any other similar solution."
The residential quarter "New City" is limited to Novocherkassky Avenue, Republican Street, Malokhtinsky Avenue and Perevozny Lane. This site on Malaya Okhta is unique: it is located very close to the historical center of the city, and at the same time is isolated from its bustle, noise and traffic jams.
