The site is located on the slope of Starokievsky Mount which is opened to the Dnieper river and is the part of the reserve "Starodavnij Kyiv" and parkland "Volodymyr's Hill."
The main idea is to connect two public zones: Andriivski Descent and Mykhailivska square by organizing a new public urban core on the surface of the designed building.
The slide of the building is terraced for creating an amphitheater with free access of citizens. Terraces with longitudinal inclination to the horizon of 8-10% can be used as a park paths that connect the upper Mykhailivska square with the lower Parkova alley.
business function, which is too big for this location determined the main challenge for architects: to do no harm and make the building minimally visible. This goal was achieved by expanding of the building body over hill slope. All vertical surfaces are glass, horizontal - grass and park gravel.
