We recently completed the detailed sketch design of two new build projects on the site of the former Silk Factory in Naro-Fominsk. A first for Mei; new build by our hand in Russia!
The two buildings are part of the Concrete ensemble, which consists of four buildings in total. In addition to the two new build projects, Concrete also includes two transformations of existing buildings – also designed by Mei. The new build projects will contain 27 apartments, including two penthouses. There will also be a shared and a private roof terrace for the residents.
The buildings are connected by an inner street, to which the residential galleries are adjacent. The first floor is publicly accessible and will have a commercial program. View the first impressions in the slider below!
About Silk Factory
Mei architects and planners developed a grand innovative plan to transform the site of the former Silk Factory in Naro-Fominsk, a city two hours driving from Moscow, into a lively area. The program of 50.000 m2 is mixed-use, a novelty in Russia, and will turn the abandoned industrial site into a vibrant small city full of new energy. Loft-style apartments in the characteristic old factory buildings will be combined with a mixture of shopping, culinary, cultural and sport facilities for the families of Naro-Fominsk and visitors from the Moscow region. With this unique and promising plan, commissioned by Ostov Group, who already developed many successful projects in Naro-Fominsk, the Silk Factory complex will become the new historical city center of this pleasant town.
