It is located in the Golyanovo District with 24 architectural structures
Moscow now boasts its first pedestrian zone with 24 architectural structures in the form of offices. It is situated on Amurskaya Street and consists of two boulevards, each 225 metres long.
Furniture for the offices was manufactured by the same company that produced the Salute children’s playground in Gorky Park. The company specialises in unusual architectural items cast in concrete covered with a wooden veneer and special lighting that can be beamed in several directions.
The new area is not far away from a residential neighbourhood which is expected to be improved in the future. There are plans to make a large landscape garden, a place where people can gather for events, meetings and lectures or work on their laptops as well as multipurpose sports grounds. Over 70 shops, restaurants and cafes are planned too.
There’s already a playground for children there created with the help of brain- development psychologists which boasts a climbing rope, a trampoline and also swings. Everything there was selected to develop motor functions, coordination and balance, as well as social and emotional skills. The Adventure Forest playground is a unique design. It is all blue, which corresponds to the world trend for single-coloured children’s areas: Copenhagen has a black children’s play area with a huge slide in the form of a spider, Torup has a red wooden playground, Shanghai has a red one with tall umbrellas, in Jönköping the green colour has been chosen and there are hills and caves, Guangzhou has a playground with orange slides and the Salute playground in Gorky Park is all grey. According to the data available, blue seems to be the most popular colour in many countries.
It’s trendy that more and more people opt to work flexible hours and enjoy working out-of-doors and prefer urban environments with more versatile opportunities. For example, it would explain coworking that at first was set up in office spaces but now is increasingly being seen near parks or sports facilities. The Neskuchny Garden, 50th Anniversary of October Revolution Park, Sokolniki and Tsaritsyno Museum Estate have developed this idea and created coworking areas.
In addition to this, people can use free wireless Internet connection in 43 Moscow parks so they can always be in contact with their families and use Wi-Fi gratis thus cutting bills on their mobile phones.
