Roman Kapenkin, student of the Saratov State Technical University, participates in the competition with a project of a housing block.
The building named 'Wedge' is located in the historical center of Saratov, along with other cultural landmarks. The project site is located at the crossroads, which to a certain extend has influenced the concept. The house comprises contrasting soothing light bottom and dynamic bright top, the latter matching in color the surrounding buildings. All the apartments within are different, with wedge-shaped terraces. As the walls of apartments are designed at an angle towards the streets, the house seems quite gentle from the outside.
