Lucky Land is a city within a city. Six blocks have 23 residential buildings with various architectural solutions and height capability, corresponding to the general concept. The project also includes underground and surface car parks, active mixed-use ground floors, a medical centre, a school, and a park.
With the emphasis on the high-quality landscaping of the territory, the idea of psychological comfort for residents is to be implemented. The residential quarters are planned in line with European cities. The environment is organized so that it is pleasant to move around and live. Approaching comfort with respect to difference and diversity, the whole territory and access to buildings will be organized in accordance with the principles of inclusiveness.
Lucky Land is not just a residential area on the outskirts of the city, but a full-fledged architectural environment that will form a new urban centre with its emergence. With active ground floors, on which, in addition to commercial space, co-working spaces are planned. Thus, we are showcasing a new way of life, where everything you need for life and work is within walking distance.
While conceiving a new urban centre, we tried to re-discover and rethink local architectural and urban planning traditions. In particular, Khreshchatyk — the central street of Kyiv facing the main square (Maydan Nezalezhnosti) — represents a linear park and ensemble buildings of the capital scale with sectoral streets. All of these elements have been rethought and incorporated into the Lucky Land development plan.
The architecture of Kyiv’s downtown, and many other European cities, also influenced the solution of the roofs adorning residential buildings. There are towers, mansard floors, sloped roofs – elements that usually form the city's silhouette.
The inspiration for the exterior solutions was the glazed ceramics, which is used for the interior of the central station of the Kyiv metro – “Khreshchatyk." It can be seen on the front facades of Lucky Land buildings but made by the latest technologies of the 21st century.
