The construction of a new premium class project called Little France by AAG Holding Company has been approved by the chief architect of the city. The residential complex will be built on the 20th line of Vasilievsky Island in terms of classic traditions of Saint Petersburg tenement buildings, however with a touch of modernity: its slender elegant facades will be done in sober colours with an emphasis on glazing. The project was designed by Liphart Architects bureau.
The spatial solution also reflects the heritage of the famous early 20th-century tenement buildings with two symmetrical buildings overlooking the red line of the street and the indented central wing forming a spacious landscaped courtyard, or cour d’honneur, a French phrase meaning ‘yard of honour’. The main front entrance to the building is located in the courtyard – along the same axis with the driveway. The street facade design takes into account the context: small details and horizontal divisions of the building, as well as its unassertive, but rich decorative detailing reconciles its character with the neighbouring late 19th – early 20th century houses. The central wing of the courtyard building is designed as a single unit with developed sculptural elements. The project designer, Stepan Lipgart, was inspired by the 1910s works by Fyodor Lidval and Vladimir Shchuko, Evgeny Levinson and Andrey Burov.
Little France will represent a housing format quite unique for Saint Petersburg: the ground floor of the complex will house duplex apartments with individual entrances resembling the historic residential buildings of large American cities. Each apartment will be completed with a small front garden, a private parking lot with a utility room and a separate entrance leading into the living room with a wood burning fireplace. The project will also include more traditional apartments with French balconies, attics and terraces.
