Ogorodnaya Sloboda Square
Re-thinking of the old square in the centre of Moscow
Old is never forgotten!
Before XX century The Ogordnaya Sloboda neighborhood was a big area inhabited by gardeners who supplied the royal court with fresh vegetables and fruits. The square is the last small fragment of previously large green area that has survived to this day.

The central element of the square is a circle, where the transit and promenade cross. It is highlighted with a circular bench providing a lighting 'halo' above.
В The trajectory of main path in the square is shortcut between the Ogorodnaya Sloboda lane and Bolshoy Kharitonyevsky lane. Architects have straightened and widened this direction to the maximum. Hard surface and lightbulbs with warm functional light mark the transit path.

The 4 meters wide main alley of the square barely used before now have become the central piece for the leisure strolls. Soft draining surface and decorative low lighting projecting graphical lines are used for this space. An apple garden and an array of flower beds find themselves along the promenade, referring to the image of a garden – commonly used plants for traditional gardening.
The core of lighting concept is the clear division of transit and leisure paths by the means of light: high illuminance values and uniformity of first are opposed to rhythm and contrast of second. Almost all luminaires were designed from scratch to fit the project needs
