Clever Park in Ekaterinburg by Twelve Architects
Twelve Architects has completed its first project in Russia, following on from its first UK completion, the £81m Diamond Building at the University of Sheffield.
The mixed use building is part of Clever Park, a development by Ural Building in the centre of Ekaterinburg, the fourth largest city in Russia. It houses a hypermarket, multi-storey car park and a multi-purpose sports venue and forms part of a 220,000 sq m residential development currently being designed by Twelve Architects.

The ground floor accommodates a hypermarket and centralised plant zone for the future residential accommodation whilst the upper five floors provide a car park for the hypermarket and the office development which was constructed in phase one. Each floor of the car park is secure and accessed separately from the main ramp to allow the floors to be sold or let to individual office tenants. A community multi-use games area will be located on the roof.

The building is clad with a punched aluminium mesh and is articulated by a concrete lattice finish in a smooth render. The external appearance creates a strong identity, aiding the wayfinding within the larger masterplan.
The building achieves the maximum development potential for the site by arranging the functions vertically, rather than developing them as separate buildings. In response to regulations in Russia that require buildings over a certain depth to be mechanically ventilated, the floor depths have been designed to allow natural ventilation. The building is also connected to the city’s central district heating network.

The scheme recently won the Regional Property Award for Best Office Development awarded by the 100+ Forum, a Russian international congress supported by the International Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat.
Twelve Architects’ other work in Russia includes the new Rostov on Don international airport, which is under construction and will be completed in time for the football World Cup in 2018, and a new 4000 seat congress hall, which is part of the International Exhibition Centre “Ekaterinburg Expo”.
