什么是 UNIT.City?|What is UNIT.City?


UNIT.City is the first Ukrainian innovation park and one of the largest innovation centers in East-Central Europe. It was founded in 2016 on the former industrial zone of Kyiv Motorcycle Factory. Since the Factory closed in the 2000’s, the site was abandoned.

UNIT.City 用户|UNIT.City users 


Main users of the space are young IT-specialists and inventors, who work on startups or study here. There are incubator for startups and UNIT.Factory. Enrollment to UNIT.Factory takes place according to the system of the French school `42`, meaning there are no formal exams or professors. Education is based on students initiative. After three years of study or even while studying, a young specialist will be able to work in IT offices that will be located on the site.

项目解决方案UNIT.City|Project solutions UNIT.City

我们的目标是创造一个让每个人都感到受欢迎的空间,在社交氛围中激发自我发展和自我提升。规划结构将不同的架构结合到统一的图像中。这个空间的核心是一个正方形。 在这里,带有绿色土墩的长椅充当周围建筑的聚集点。我们在学校,咖啡厅和办公中心附近的露天设计了独立的工作和社交空间。特别注重细节:独立设计的栏杆,内置灯,垃圾箱和长凳。

▼规划结构将不同的架构结合到统一的图像中,planning structure combines different architecture into the unified image

Our goal was to create a space where everyone feels welcome, that provokes self-development and self-improvement in a social atmosphere.
Planning structure combines different architecture into the unified image. At the core of the space is a square. Here, benches with green mounds act as a gathering point for the surrounding buildings. We allocated separate areas for working and socializing in the open air near the school, the cafe and the office center. There are also green spaces in the area for physical activities.  Special attention is paid to details: individually designed railings with built-in light, litter bins and benches.

这个空间现在如何生活?|How does the space live now?


UNIT.City is actively used under completely different scenarios. Since 2017 UNIT.City organized more than 400 events: lectures, networkings, exhibitions, etc. The public space is full of life from morning until night. Residents work and relax in the open air at daytime, and gather on the square in the evening to play guitar and hang out.
