Skolkovo Business Park in Moscow

Scott Brownrigg has won a competition to provide masterplan and architectural design for Skolkovo Park on the outskirts of Moscow, Russia, for Millhouse.

Skolkovo business park will be located near to the Skolkovo Innovation Centre, a high technology business area being built in Moscow.

The 104,000m² business park will feature six 14,300m² office buildings designed around a central landscaped space with pools and woodland.

The buildings will house multi-storey car parks and 10,000m² of retail space. Each building will have six-storeys above ground level and two basement levels.

Entrance to the business park will be through a set of 25m-high sculptural bronze blades.

Scott Brownrigg said that the design layout allows for sub-division through use, or total unification of the site into a single business campus.

The buildings will be covered in unitised curtain walling modules with double glazed panels and anodised aluminium cappings.

Sustainable features of the project include the use of ice stored below ground to passively cool the buildings and a district heating system.

Upon completion, Skolkovo business park is expected to achieve BREEAM Excellent rating.

Scott Brownrigg added that the arrangement of buildings, roads and parking within the landscape is intended as an urban-rural concept that concentrates the development into an urban group of buildings allowing the masterplan to dedicate a large part of the site as rural landscape.

The master plan design aims to combine enhanced arrival experience, quality landscape, social interaction and retail experience.
