  • Human
    This is a full-fledged retail center that has all the necessary functions and an interesting, captivating internal structure. Despite the building’s huge outside size, its variable inner space is comfortable for visitors.
  • Business
    This is the largest retail center with many record-breaking retail space indicators, an indoor entertainment park and attractive layout structure, which would attract shoppers from the city and region.
  • Urban
    An apt design of such a huge property creates a humane environment both inside and around the building. Inner streets of galleries and atrium squares create comfortable conditions for visitors. On the outside, stores located on the complex’s side facades form busy, well-lit streets.

Objective:

  • Creating a humane object for the environment, despite its huge size
  • One of the tasks was to calculate the strength of the ceiling for the possibility of passing through them of construction equipment and cranes
  • Thinking out the scenario of a visit to the retail and entertainment center Creating a route for an interesting walk – this way, we have developed a whole scenario

Challenge:

Setting up a large number of working groups, and coordinating work of a huge number of people. We also had to use new software technologies, which marked the beginning of our parametric design practice.

Hardships:

  • Absence of analogs of such a retail and entertainment center in Ukraine, which meant that we couldn’t borrow from examples of how centers of this kind are operated in our country
  • Constant changes in the project, and tight schedule

Solutions:

  • We created a futuristic image of a retail and entertainment center, reflected on both the exterior and the interior
  • We created intrigue for visitors by making all galleries curvilinear to make it interesting for them to walk the complex’s inner space. This way, a visitor does not see the end of the gallery, but to feel the urge to keep walking, something will be revealing to them, little by little, as they move forward
  • We designed a broad atrium shaped as a cheese slice, making it not a one huge volume but the space consisting of eight different-sized domes piercing the atrium’s structure and creating an interesting space for a children’s entertainment center
  • The main parking space is located beneath the building to avoid the customary field of cars around a shopping mall and make it easier to navigate the complex
  • By slightly reducing the parking space under the building, we proposed to liven up the retail complex’s perimeter with small stores and cafes. This way, the street additionally illuminated by showcase lights and attracting pedestrians becomes safe for people living nearby
  • The key emphasis was placed on the complex’s main entrance groups built on the basis of parametric calculations. They are shaped as truncated cones widening from the smaller to the larger oval base – such a complex form would have been impossible to design by technical drawing
  • We created an interior design trend, which subsequently was copycatted by all large shopping malls

Facts and details:

  • The floor area of Respublika Retail and Entertainment Center is larger than the area of Mariinskyi Park
  • The first indoor roller coaster in Kyiv was designed for Respublika Retail and Entertainment Center
  • Respublika Retail and Entertainment Center’s brand book was created by Artemii Lebedev Design Studio
  • Elliptical dome size: 50×62 m
  • Atrium space: 6 920 sq.m
  • Total gallery length: 1 730 m
  • Total number of parking spots in the underground parking and on ground parking lots: 3 260
