A project of a public and business campus “Horizon” at Sevkabel Port Premises in St. Petersburg is presented in the “Best Project of Public Space” category.
Sevkabel Port at the harbor of Vasilevskiy Island in St. Petersburg is a new project aimed at renovation of old facilities and historic buildings and turning them into a modern multifunctional creative space at the waterfront. Opened in 2018, the space keeps on developing.
RHIZOME, group of St. Petersburg-based architects, participates in the Third Golden Trezzini Awards for Architecture and Design with their project of a public and business campus “Horizon” at Sevkabel Port Premises. For the campus on the Block B’s roof, 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.
