Who came up with this idea?
This project was designed by the Russian Kleinewelt Architekten bureau. The reconstruction was conducted per decision by the Moscow Committee for Architecture and Urban Planning.
What is it?
The biggest Audi and Mercedes-Benz dealer center in Europe was opened at the location of the former ZIL model shop. The building facades have been retained in the aesthetics and style inherent to 1930s constructivism. You can find numerous functional, conceptual spaces in one place. To conduct a proper reconstruction, the architects studied shop drawings for half a year.
What have they accomplished?
They maintained the original conceptual design of the building and the memory of its historical role. Furthermore, this building once again became fully functional.
