The territory of the complex is about 6.5 hectares. This area is equal to the size of a small park. Therefore, the idea was to create a small park right inside the yard.
The main principles for the inner spaces of the quarter were: to create a close yard without cars, to improve public functions of the first floors, to protect the yard from the main street noise.
Public spaces are strung like beads on the alley: recreation areas, mini garden, children’s and sports grounds. Some features which are quite new for Belarus were included in the project: outdoor offices, rainwater seepage systems, water-bound path surfaces, and eco-gardens.
Work was done team-wise with
