Text from Blank Architects: "When the Lipetsk based shopping center was named "Rivere" we all felt like it was a good idea. The name recalls sunny warm days spent on the beach. We were trusted with designing the facades and the interiors. We imagined the sun, the blue sky, some white sand and colorful cocktails with small paper umbrellas in them. We imagined the sun, the blue sky, some white sand, and colorful cocktails with small paper umbrellas in them. This is a perfect holiday world created to support the brand name, and you can easily imagine customers doing their shopping in flip flops, even in the middle of a Russian winter. The same colors are used in the interior, captured in the glass balustrades of the main atrium and the lamp shades in the food court. The interior has more details than the façade: the framed shop fronts, fish-ornamented chandeliers, and bubbles pattern on the columns. It also has wooden details and the lightness of a sail filled with the wind."
