Masterplan of the central embankment of Sochi

Masterplan of the central embankment of Sochi

The masterplan for Sochi’s central waterfront is based on the principles of future-oriented design and the desire to create a world-class waterfront that will provide a sustainable future in harmony with the coastal environment. The concept is based on the idea of transforming the waterfront from an alienated mega-space to a system of multi-scale spaces that meet modern demands for multifunctionality and reflect a local identity.

Russia, Sochi

The alternation of active saturated spaces and quieter natural ones creates a whole palette of experiences and provides a balance of areas for both active leisure and places for rest and relaxation. Also the area will provide a various cultural program with educational, recreational and tourist infrastructure. Thus, we are creating a multifunctional zone that meets the interests of business, tourism and the local population. The waterfront will become the center of attraction of Sochi, a connecting element of the city and nature, one of the main areas of welcome for tourists and residents — transport hubs and main arrival points for tourists (railway station, sea port) will be connected with Sochi National Park. Thus, the introduction to the multifaceted city color will continue with immersion in the rich nature of Sochi.
