Philosopher’s Stone Apartments
— Kogalym, Russia
Completion due 2024
The “first of a kind” for Kogalym, Philosopher’s Stone Apartments pave the way for high-rise development and modern liveability within the area.
These apartments commissioned by Lukoil propose a mixture of residential, commercial, and social infrastructure all within one development. A first in terms of this construction and design theory within Kogalym, Philosopher’s Stone Apartments complement other progressive projects we have undertaken with this client for the local community.
We have taken our inspiration from the shapes of the squared circle, the symbol of the fabled Philosopher’s Stone - triangle, circle and square.
The Philosopher’s Stone Apartments respond to the changing social context of Kogalym, providing future-proofed housing that meets the needs of both current and subsequent generations. Applying modern design principles throughout the development, we can improve liveability through enhanced internal and external apartment amenity, contributing to positive living environments and resident well-being.
Throughout the apartment’s three blocks, we have proposed a mixture of apartment sizes to facilitate greater choice for Kogalym’s different demographics, living needs and household budgets.
The project also contains a Children’s Medical Clinic and a Smart Library for the Residents of the City of Kogalym.
We hope to generate social dynamism through the creation of different types of communal spaces for a broad range of people, providing opportunities for social interaction amongst the residents of the buildings.
With the initial concept design approved and Technical Design soon underway, we are looking forward to seeing this progressive project come to life in Kogalym.
