The design solution is based on considering the design area not as one large district, but as a full-fledged city, which has its own inner structure divided into independent infrastructurally and socially secure planning elements.
An important factor is the presence of polycentricity, which helps develop separate local subcenters in each of the planning elements. This principle creates a brand new perception of urban life for the residents of each area, where different neighbourhoods have their own identity and visibility. A system of environmental perception is formed for various central locations connected with unique functional facilities or public spaces, which all together create a whole range of versatile scenarios for urban environment perception.
At the same time, all the subcenters are united into one system by means of common recreational and pedestrian frame.
The district structure presents a dense regular urban fabric, consisting of residential development, which is evenly saturated with public facilities and spaces. The area of public zones is occupied by public buildings (social infrastructure facilities) and adjacent green landscaped zones (squares, parks, public gardens, pedestrian boulevards with grounds for sports and recreation).
A unified system of public spaces, an integrated composition is built on the basis of two outlines, which link together evenly dispersed attraction points by means of pedestrian traffic. The first outline is a pedestrian recreational frame – a pedestrian transit, which mainly follows the pedestrian zones and streets with pedestrian priority. It features green boulevards, where sportsgrounds, playgrounds and recreational areas are located. This outline unites squares, parks, public gardens, pedestrian boulevards, public and social facilities (schools, kindergartens, healthcare facilities) into one pedestrian route. The second outline is a transit public space located along the main transport roads of district and city status. Pedestrian traffic is concentrated between public transport stops, where retail and public service facilities are located.
For the central part of the district, the park zone and the zone of comfortable housing, the suggestion is to create artificial waterbodies and unique urban landscapes, providing a higher level of urban environment comfort. The presence of an integrated recreational space in the heart of the district is also conditioned by practical necessity to consider and use the zones not suitable for development, including zones of engineering restrictions.
