The Lakhta Center is the new multifunctional complex requested by Gazprom under construction in St. Petersburg. The project includes the tallest skyscraper in Europe, the future icon of the city, and is scheduled to be completed in 2018.
Exclusiva, the key contractor for the public spaces, has explored the theme of energy as inspiration for the interiors, which is interpreted through light, interaction and geometric surfaces.
The lines express movement, speed and dynamism: a force towards the future that unquestionably combines with experimentation and technological innovation.
A “natural canyon” emerges from the combination of the two buildings, developing the atrium vertically, like a gallery with the urban dimension dominated by the planetary sphere.
