Dmytro Aranchii Architects team developed competition project of cultural space on the Andriivskyi descent.

This is about reconstruction of former “Yunist” factory: the developer plans to occupy the main territory with the area of 1 ha with offices and other commercial objects, yet 2 000 sq. meters are allocated for the cultural component. The competiotion terms defined a mission to place a hall for chamber music concerts in the designed building.

Besides the hall Dmytro Aranchii and his colleagues suggested to place a literature space in the cultural center suitable for seminars, conferences, meetings of readers and writers, poets and essayists, as there is a lack of such place in Kyiv. The auditorium for such meetings can be reached from ground and first floors of the building. In addition, literature research center, bookshop, library/mediatheque, ticket-desk, info-center and excursion bureau as well as lounge zone and café, that tend to become a popular place for informal communication, are situated here. From the same level you can get both to the concert hall with 125 seats, and in the production center and a recording studio.

On the first and second floors it`s suggested to arrange temporary exhibition halls with mobile partitions as well as permanent exhibition. However architects realize that creating a new collection of outstanding art works is a difficult task, that is why they suggest either taking them in long-term leasing or attracting private art lover, wishing to make his collection available to the general public – giving as an example the story of the Thyssen-Bornemisza collection, now exhibited in Madrid.

On the second floor there is also an educational center planned, and on the half underground floor – administrative and utility rooms and parking. A special role is played by a courtyard, partially overlapped cantilevered upper floors of offsets: they can be held in the open air exhibitions, performances and any other events.

Abstractly interpreted gable roof in agreement to the climatic conditions, and harmonized with the surrounding buildings, while the parametric facades are covered with recycled in accordance with the theory of fractals national Ukrainian ornament of flowers stars.
