Public and business campus “Horizon” at Sevkabel Port Premises

Best Project of Public Space

About the project
For the campus on the Block B’s roof at Sevkabel Port, abandoned industrial venues were reconsidered and adjusted for modern urban life. The new premises delicately complement the ensemble of Russia’s oldest cable plant. The campus is formed by four spaces: a recreation zone with a sauna, a promenade, a race track, and an office block, all of them offering views of the Gulf of Finland.
The entrance to all the spaces is a locker and shower zone in the sauna block. This seemingly auxiliary place lets citizens change into their swimming or sportive suits and proceed to sun bathing in open terraces, resting in a sauna with a view, or enjoying the scenery and the illimitable water surface.
