TROITSK VILLAGE Master Plan,  Moscow, Russia

A pioneering mixed-use community outside Moscow

Formally an agricultural institution, the 213 hectare parcel is located 20 kilometers southwest of Moscow between the Moscow-Kaluga Federal Highway and the Pakhra River basin. One of the objectives of the master plan was to preserve and maximize the use of the site’s natural features, dating from its days as an agricultural research facility. A series of long allees and rows of large mature trees were incorporated into the master plan, along with the site’s rolling hills, existing ponds, lakes and hedgerows. Philip, as a project manager and one of the lead designers, worked with local experts to understand the site constraints and opportunities. The result is higher quality infrastructure, open space, special features; and amenities that are currently not available in the region. A decentralized storm water retention area and a water management system were introduced in the early stage of the design. As a result, water run-off from the streets will be collected and filtered back into the streams, ponds and fishing lakes. The master plan includes 479 single-family homes, 261 town homes, open spaces and an array of recreational, academic, and retail buildings, all of which will be located within the site's rolling landscape.
