McAdam Architects are part of an international design consortium with the International Academy of Architecture, including well-known Russian architects – Andrey Chernikov and Alexei Ginsburg.

Concept ideas are to be publicly exhibited in six months time by 10 shortlisted teams, including OMA, Ricardo Bofill, and Willmotte & Associes.

Practice director, Tanya Kalinina said: “This is a completely unusual task. The strategy for a major capital city of over ten million is to be completely re-thought and enlarged to twice the size.”

McAdam’s previous experience in the region includes the master plan of the Nikolo-Khovanskoye new town for 15,000 people.

McAdam Architects – Key Projects

Sputnik Development Sochi, Russia
Date: 2011-
McAdam Architects with Ginzburg Architects

The architects office, in a joint venture with Moscow-based Ginzburg Architects, has been shortlisted for a 40,000 m2 mixed use, “Sputnik” multi-storey development in the resort city of Sochi (Krasnodar region), on the Black Sea coast, southern Russia.

Sputnik Development Sochi
The £75m project is located in a formal parkland setting, along Kurortny Prospekt, the main boulevard through Sochi, and in a prominent elevated position, overlooking the main harbour and marina. This prime site provides a landmark development location, as a symbolic gateway to the city and a beacon to the coast line frontage.

The mixed use scheme comprises a two-level elevated plinth including a retail/entertainment complex, over three levels of basement, with two slinky-like 19-storey towers of serviced apartments above. The retail /entertainment element, that is required in the brief, cleverly uses the section to house the cinema within a half basement level to reduce the impact of the development on the parkland surroundings.

The design intent is to incorporate the sloping park landscape, as a series of terraces for outdoor eating on the roof and in the complex restaurant level. In this manner the public routes from the park and through to the marina become the public malls at ground and roof level of the development.
