SUPERFRAME | 2nd Place!!

FANTASTIC NEWS!! Project Superframe wins Second Prize for the International competition for Standard Housing and Residential Development in Russia!!! ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿพ ๐Ÿ—๏ธ

How to define a livable city in the Russian context in the 21st century? We designed a humanistic cityscape re-establishing the existing Russian Microrayon into a new kind of district that creates livable, walkable neighborhoods. Rather than the existing isolated block typology, our model proposes courtyards to create public & private spaces with in-between pedestrian zones for activities and public functions.

We believe cities should be fun, engaging, easy to navigate through, offering new possibilities for the urban citizen! Our proposal re-evaluates contemporary urban life and new modes of living. We propose greater individual expression in the city fabric, timber architecture and standardized systems offering sustainable & affordable housing!
