— The site where we were working together with Eclipse was called «Dneprovskaia Optika». The extended parameters of the site (15 x 100 m) made us look for unique space-planning solution for residential building.
As a result we created an expressive architectural form being a challenge to territorial limitations seamlessly blended with the nature.
The shape of the building might look somewhat provocative in comparison with the traditional image of the local architecture.
The goal was to demonstrate the urge of the dwellers to timeless values, living in harmony with nature. Wide vintage windows of the first – third floors with picturesque panoramic view of the river Dnipro negate the limits between inner and external spaces.
As far as I know, in 2011 the biggest in Ukraine stained-glass window with integral glass unit (approx. 7 x 3 m) was produced for this facility. No complaints were received from the customer during this facility operation.
Company’s representatives were consulting us while creating the project.
Anton Trush, the head of the company, suggested producing huge experimental stained-glass window.
All the risks connected to its manufacturing, transportation and etc. were taken by Eclipse. This experiment was a success. To date we have already completed several projects with Eclipse.
We can be proud of the completed facilities.
