The residential complex consists of five 26-story buildings, arranged in a checkerboard pattern on top of a multi-level underground car park. This configuration, identical in the form and height of the volumes, has created a system of semi-enclosed courtyards between the buildings. The main entrances executed as solemn portals face these courtyards.
The architectural character of Vodniy residential complex is based on a combination of a memorable urban silhouette and elaborate facades made of multicolored ceramics. A unique design for the facade of each building is achieved by using glazed ceramic surfaces of various tonalities and relief.
Each tower includes apartments ranging from 39 to 97 square meters, both as studio types, and with 1-2 separate bedrooms. On the first floors of the complex all the necessary infrastructure is provided, including social services – a kindergarten and early childhood development center, a fitness club, cafes and restaurants, and consumer services and amenities.
