It was important for architects to preserve the identity of the historical place when working with the small square near the walls of the Kremlin in Kolomna (a small Russian town located three hours of Moscow). That is why a clinker brick imitating the brick from the Kremlin wall is used in the paving. The shape of wooden lamps for the landscape lighting is taken from the elements of the Kremlin towers.

Landscaping is a unique feature for the new space: the brick paving gradually transitions into the fresh lawn, and the preserved mature trees provide comfortable shade.

莫斯科Basis architecture bureau的建筑师Ivan Okhapkin回忆道:“作为建筑师,我们希望能为场地创造出符合乡村小镇特色的家庭氛围,因此,我们在广场中采用了人性化的尺度设计,并采用了带有温暖质感的材料。”

Ivan Okhapkin, Basis architectural bureau (Moscow): We, as architects, wanted to convey a «home-like» atmosphere characteristic of a small county town, so we kept the human scale in the proportions and used «warm» natural materials.

In the evening, the space is transformed by the built-in spot lighting.The square with a scattering of lights against the background of the Kremlin wall becomes a new «wanna see» attraction in the tourist route of Kolomna.
