The planned community of Salarievo is a leading example of landscape-led residential design in Moscow, Russia. The masterplan is inspired by its naturalistic surroundings, creating a dynamic community with a significant landscape at its heart that provides a canvas for family life.
Gillespies’ landscape concept takes full advantage of Salarievo’s beautiful naturalistic ‘forest’ setting, drawing nature right into the heart of the scheme through a myriad of verdant spaces - parks, squares, play-able zones and civic spaces - that offer a wide variety of settings for daily life, encouraging social interaction and creating a place where people want to live, work and play. The masterplan focuses on creating a ‘liveable city’ where walking, cycling, play and social interaction is encouraged and is key to the schemes success as a new residential quarter.
A boulevard or ‘green spine’ – surrounded by active frontages and interspersed with a series of public spaces – defines and connects the site from north to south together with a series of neighbourhoods, each defined by three linear parks. These linear parks are designed in such a way to be overlooked and defined by the surrounding built form. Six distinct neighbourhoods are formed by these linear parks, and connected by the main boulevard. They are referred to as Forest Neighbourhood, The Gateway, Green Park, Forest Enclave, Green Village and Woodland Town.
