A complex of innovative solutions in residential property design: half-open blocks with varying amount of levels in sections, PRO-apartments, 3 km of pedestrian promenade with a bicycle ring and Smart street.
Nivki区位于基辅人口最稠密的地区中部。住宅综合体“法纳镇”是在农田用地上设计的。因此，住宅综合体“法纳镇”项目需要把陈旧的、废弃的、过时的土地转化成一片住宅用地，为社区提供充满活力的开放空间。该地区的改造有助于城市发展和 Nivki 区现有的整体生活水平的改变。在 “法纳镇”中，住宅综合体的底层被规划为为商业区，对现有交通网络进行了重组、扩展、改进和补充，以适应新城市街区的建设。
The Nivki district is located in the middle of the most densely populated district in Kyiv. In particular, the Residential complex “Fayna Town” itself was designed on the territory of former agricultural lands (a vegetable factory with greenhouses), Thus, the building project of the Residential complex “Fayna Town” includes the creative transformation of the old, derelict, outdated and abandoned territory into a place for residential use with vibrant open spaces for communities. This transformation of the place contributes to urban development and change in the overall standard of living of the existing area of Nivki district. In the Residential complex “Fayna Town”, the ground floors of the complex are allocated for commercial premises, and the existing transport networks were reorganized, expanded, improved and supplemented with technological gadgets, adapted to the construction of a new urban block.
众所周知，建筑和景观是密不可分的。在法纳镇中，有时景观和现有的自然种植园更能代表整个区域。因此，我们保留并突出了场地上常绿乔木的轴线，作为主要步行长廊（超过 3 公里长，沿路线加宽和变窄）的起点。贯穿整个区域，步行长廊的主要方向与小区无车内院的半私密社区空间密不可分，即便是在最小的细节，也采用多层次、多样化的种植、有趣的景观以及创新的设计。
As we know, architecture and landscape have always been closely intertwined. And in our projects sometimes the landscape and existing natural plantations define the concept of the whole area. So, in the Residential complex “Fayna Town”, we preserved and highlighted the axis of evergreen trees located on the site, which served as a starting point for creating the main pedestrian promenade (over 3 km long with the widening and narrowing along the route). Passing through the entire area, the main direction of the pedestrian promenade is inextricably connected with the semi-private spaces for communities in the car-free inner yards of quarters, where in the smallest details the natural environment is recreated with a multi-tiered and diverse planting, interesting landscape and innovative design.
各种各样的种植园有助于强调根据位置划分的不同功能区，并为居民提供拥抱自然的感受。因此，庭院里种有一片桦树林，椭圆形的桦树林给人一种完整、稳定和宁静的感觉。住宅立面附近种植的“宾州白蜡树”则突出了景观的流畅线条。种植不同类型的观赏草和灌木，这是现代景观设计的必要组成部分。此外还有枫树“Drummondi”、椴树“Tilia cordata”和落地白椴“Cornus alba”等。树木的多样性使景观具有了季节性，从而使之保持源源不断的吸引力。
The variety of tree nursery helped to emphasize the relief depending on the location function and give to residents a sense of nature all around. So, in the courtyard there is a birch grove, which in its oval form gives a sense of integrity, stability and tranquility of this zone. The ash “Fraxinus pennsylvanica” near the facades of the houses is planted to underline the smooth lines of the landscape. Throughout the territory planted groups of different types of ornamental grass and bushes, which are necessary parts of modern landscape design. Also there is a maple “Drummondi”, linden “ Tilia cordata” and landing of the derain white “ Cornus alba” and so on. This diversity of the tree nursery allows to make the landscape multi-seasonal and attractive at any time of the year.
At the design and improvement of the territory were used various small architectural forms such as benches, pergola, and chaise lounges, which give physical comfort for residents of the housing in more private and cozy public space.
Landscape design determines the scenario of location events. Due to the construction of the system of the dynamic floor dry fountain the landscape environment comes alive and exaggerates the emotional coloring of the space (calm or festive). To demarcate the spaces according to the destination various materials were used in paving, such as colored asphalt, lawn grating, paving blocks, natural stone. Large areas are given for the construction of children’s sports complexes with flooring of rubber crumb. Tactile elements on the pedestrian path as well as ramps make public places convenient for persons with disabilities. Multi-level lighting of the paving along the main directions of the walkways in the inner part of the “Fayna Town” residential complex creates a feeling of warmth, a romantic and charming atmosphere.
In addition to the above, the landscape design of the whole residential complex is carefully designed and looped around by a cycle track (with a total length of 12 km) which leads to a bike parking near the metro station. Salyutna Street, which borders on the territory of “Fayna Town”, was also modernized and transformed into a “smart street”. This system is a complex of sensors that read information from observation cameras and pedestrian smartphones and collect data in one array. Digital technologies of the “smart city” will provide communication between people and urban infrastructure in order to maximally subordinate the needs of citizens.
As a result, a completely new comfortable diversified environment for all segments of the population such as children, adults, elderly people, as well as people with limited mobility, was created from the huge area of old, derelict, outdated and abandoned territory via architecture and landscape design.
For Fayna Town residents, it’s a quality living environment inside the complex, while the buffer zone around it creates favorable conditions for the surrounding neighborhoods.
This is an example of how an investor or developer can make more money by building quality housing.
