The Cultural Centre of ‘Roses’ is based on the design of mechanisms to conduct and qualify the natural lighting, so as to adapt it to the requirements of the centre. Therefore, the building has been considered from the idea of the sea foam, as the volume has been fluffed through a patio that spreads the natural light into the building, while a white perforated skin tones the light down and guarantees the energy efficiency of the building.

Our proposal for the historic Pushkinsky Theater creates a programmatic envelope for the existing volume that expands the territory of the theater into a series of enfolded layers and surfaces that connect the building enclosure to the plinth on which it resides and out onto the landscape of Pushkin Square itself. The shifting angles of the new envelope knit together the two axes in the public space of the square: the building’s frontal alignment with the park, fountain and Pushkin statue and its diagonal relationship to the Boulevard Ring angling away from it.
