never seen such a rich collection of forms in a housing estate before! really delightful experience after a lot of grey concrete and poor design. it looks like for the 80s architects got bored with unattractive housing projects, and they also had the chance to plan buildings as smart as possible. we can tell about many block buildings, that they are lego houses, but here they used a high, almost western quality lego. the most noticeable feature of the buildings is the careful attention, which accompanied their planning. the goal of architects is not anymore to get off the job with the lowest charges and the highest plan numbers, but to find a way to create an environment more exciting and fitting to human demands.
look at the facades! with a good cut, they are pure aesthetic play of forms.
genre paintings with high contrasts of baltic winter.
different house types are also interesting in three dimension.
a blue quarter.
other facades in the space.
microdistricts in golden sunshine.
