Golutvin
Moscow, Central District
Historically, the development of the block has high density and undeveloped infrastructure of the yards. The project proposes the creation of a walking zone, which would unite two blocks and would be a natural extension of the recreational zone of the Krymskaya embankment.

The sidewalks of the embankment are too narrow and do not cope with the flow of pedestrians, which is also the reason for creating a comfortable walk-through passage that would unite the blocks. A large number of historical buildings are located on the territory of the blocks, which store the memory of the place, and also the value of the environment is increased by the object of cultural heritage of federal significance: Ryabushinskys' Manor "Residential house of the beginning of the XIX century".

The liberation of the territory from fences makes it more open, lead to an integration of the space of the blocks into the urban fabric. Internal yards are enriched with small architectural forms, such as fountains and benches; the paving, made after an individual project, intersperse with green landscaped areas. Thus, a comfortable environment is created, which attracts the employees of offices for small walks in close proximity to their workplaces. The catering places with street food in the neighborhoods and adjacent areas are concentrated mainly on the island; that is why the office workers need creation of new, conveniently located cafes and restaurants on the ground floors of the designed buildings. Within the project, an underground parking lot will be organized, which will solve the problem of congestion of cars parked in the streets by office employees.
Current situation
Block No. 43
Block No. 433
Historical development — Block No. 432
At the beginning of the 19th century, the block represented the territory of urban estates, with the exception of the sites at the intersection of the 4th Golutvinsky Lane and Yakimanskaya Embankment, as well as at the one of Bolshaya Yakimanka St. and the embankment, which housed rental industrial households.

In the middle of the 19th century the district is divided into two parts: the waterfront is adjacent to the industrial houses, to the 1-st Golutvinsky lane and Bolshaya Yakimanka St. overlook the urban estates.

At the moment the territory is formed by rental industrial households of the 2nd half of the 19th century that were supplemented by additional buildings and annexes of the 1950s and 2000s, as well as the buildings of former urban estates.
Историческое развитие — квартал № 433


At the end of the 18th - the beginning of the 19th century, the block represented the territory of urban estates, with the exception of the site at the intersection of the 4th Golutvinsky Lane and the Yakimanskaya Embankment, which rental industrial household.

In the middle of the 19th century the district is divided into two parts: the waterfront is adjacent to the industrial houses, the 1-st Golutvinsky lane overlook the urban estates.

By the beginning of the 20th century, the entire territory belonged to the Moscow Golutvinsky Textile Manufactory Association, except for the Ryabushinsky Manor House.

At present, the territory is formed by administrative complexes of the 1990-2000s.
Blocks № 432 and № 433 are located in a convenient part of the city, where three metro stations (Polyanka, Tretyakovskaya and Kropotkinskaya) are in the pedestrian access zone. It takes about 6 minutes to get to the Polyanka metro station on foot (at a normal pace), and one can walk to Kropotkinskaya and Tretyakovskaya in 15-18 minutes. A walk of about 20-25 minutes takes one to the metro stations "Park Kultury" and "Novokuznetskaya".
Creation of a new pedestrian zone
Historically, the development of the block has a high density and undeveloped infrastructure of the yards.

The project proposes the creation of a walking zone, which unites two blocks and is a natural extension of the recreational zone of the Krymskaya embankment.

The sidewalks of the embankment are too narrow and do not cope with the flow of pedestrians, which is also the reason for creating a comfortable walk-through passage that would unite the blocks.

A large number of historical buildings are located on the territory of the blocks, which store the memory of the place, and also the value of the environment is increased by the object of cultural heritage of federal significance: Ryabushinskys' Manor "Residential house of the beginning of the XIX century".

The liberation of the territory from fences makes it more open, lead to an integration of the space of the blocks into the urban fabric. Internal yards are enriched with small architectural forms, such as fountains and benches; the paving, made after an individual project, intersperse with green landscaped areas. Thus, a comfortable environment is created, which attracts the employees of offices for small walks in close proximity to their workplaces.

The catering places with street food in the neighborhoods and adjacent areas are concentrated mainly on the island; that is why the office workers need creation of new, conveniently located cafes and restaurants on the ground floors of the designed buildings.

Currently, the embankment of the bypass channel is cluttered with a large number of cars, which creates problems for the movement of pedestrians and disturbs the aesthetic perception of the embankment.

Within the project, an underground parking lot will be organized, which will solve the problem of congestion of cars parked in the streets by office employees.

The pedestrian zone of the embankment needs connection to the inner yards of the blocks in order to establish their connection with the city.
