On the banks of the Kuban River, this is an important cultural complex on three levels, for overall floorspace of 2840 m2.


The building located at Krasnodar, in southern Russia, contains a convention center – with a capacity of 720 – a restaurant, a cafe, a viewing point looking towards the river and a new pedestrian plaza.


The project offers the Milan-based Piuarch studio the opportunity to redesign the relationship between the city and the riverfront.


The result is a complex with a sinuous, soft, organic front, which establishes a relationship with nature, letting itself by permeated by light.


At night the total glass enclosure makes the building into a lantern visible from the entire riverbank.
