Leopol Town
Architecture: Archimatika
Project type: Residential complex
Timeline: 2014 – present time
Status: Under construction
Total space: 58 600 sq.m
Location: Ukraine, Lviv, 195 Stryiska St 

A cozy residential complex with an aspen grove in the courtyard. Gable roofs of different-story sections create a special atmosphere and expressive silhouette, while vertical inserts of staircase and elevator blocks bear a resemblance to chimneys.

Solutions:
- A combination of infill and block development helped preserve the maximum number of trees growing on the site
- The maximum preservation of existing trees provides natural protection to the living space against noise and dust and creates a comfortable atmosphere
- Gable roofs create a cozy silhouette of apartment buildings
- Protruding verticals of staircase and elevator blocks cutting through gable roofs form the image of the chimney
- A dual rhythm of stories, shifting of windows and combination of different finishing materials add expressiveness to facades
- The area’s amenities include various recreation and commercial areas: stores, cafes, restaurants, children’s and sports grounds
- The inner courtyard is pedestrian, with the only vehicles permitted to enter are those of emergency services and persons with reduced mobility; in addition, the preserved perennial trees helped create a well-tended forest park in the courtyard

Facts and details:
- Leopol Town consists of three sectional 7-story buildings and four 10-story towers
- A mini market will be built next to the complex
- The pedestrian street running along the complex connects the bus terminal and Arena Lviv
- The complex’s perimeter development will be lower than infill buildings in order not to obstruct panoramic views opening from apartments on top floors
- The parceling of development stays in line with the old town: not exceeding 20 m from entrance to entrance
- At the concept stage, we proposed two options with flat and gable roofs, and the client set up a focus group who unanimously voted in favor of the gable roof option
