Ferrum business center

Best Implemented Project of Public Building or Facility

About the project
The business center stands in the place of the ex Rossiya plant — it is the first building in St. Petersburg with all-corten-steel facades. This ever-lasting material of a typical brown color gave this place its name and totally defined its appearance. Именно из этого материала выполнены элементы фасадной облицовки – своего рода объемные «ленты», которыми прямоугольное в плане здание обвязано и по горизонтали, и по вертикали. Using flat and convex modules, the architects make the facade resemble an illusion of twinning. At the corners of the building fragile glazing contrasts on the rough corten steel. The finial is a gilded metal belt.
