BDP has completed a masterplan study for Samara, the sixth largest city in Russia, providing the services of masterplanner, architect, landscape architect and sustainability consultant.
The Samara Center sits at the heart of the city and occupies 12 hectares of former industrial land.
Driven by the provision of 5,000 apartments, the scheme also contains a kindergarten, retail and leisure facilities, mid-rise office buildings plus a hotel and central administration building.
The masterplan involves a series of landscaped courtyards focusing on a central park, and the creation of two new civic spaces.
BDP was supported by WSP and cost consultant Davis Langdon.
