Residential Complex Mirax
A modern residential complex in the historical part of the city was created by order of the development company Kievgorstroy. Location of residential complex Mirax: Hlybochytska Street, Kiev.
Within the framework of the project, architectural and consulting services were provided
On the site intended for the residential complex “Mirax”, there was already a structure – a partially erected frame of a round tower, which was planned as an office complex. The tower was given over for housing, commercial premises are located on the first floors. The layout of the building and the frame have been improved and adapted.
The composition of the layout of the houses was proposed by the British partner of the company, the director of the London office of Leslie Jones Architects Simon Scott. The tower is the compositional core of the complex, the curvilinear geometry of which is projected onto other buildings. The number of storeys in other houses has become variable due to terracing.
The compositional solution made it possible to create a private territory of the residential complex with full-fledged courtyards with landscaping and playgrounds. Special vehicles, ambulances and service vehicles can enter the courtyards.
For finishing the facade of the residential complex Mirax, clinker bricks were chosen as a material that corresponds to the “design code” of the historic district. The choice was made in favor of warm, natural shades.
A closed multi-level parking for residents has been designed. The old retaining wall on the site became the basis for the construction of the parking lot. The parking is separated from the green zone by apartments, thanks to which it was possible to avoid the blank surfaces of the facade of the building and improve the technical and economic indicators of the complex.
Market research has been carried out, which made it possible to select a mix of functions necessary for residents of the residential complex and pedestrians. The premises were created for specific functions – trade, restaurants, sports, etc. During the research phase, retailers and operators confirmed their interest in locations, and areas were designed for specific requests. Shops, cafes and other establishments will open in the public zone.
