AB ELIS Ltd. are the architects for the Pokrovskoe Educational Complex, a private school campus located in the beautiful hills near the suburban development of Pokrovskoe, nineteen kilometers from the Moscow Ring Road. The developer Villagio Estate has chosen AB ELIS for this job because of their impressive record in creating both educational and residential facilities in Moscow, Riazan and other Russian cities.
Pokrovskoe is the first project of such magnitude in the territory of the Russian Federation. Occupying the area of 150,000 square meters, it will include a variety of modern buildings and facilities united by an intricate web of walkways and bike paths. All the roads, pathways, buildings and facilities are fully accessible for wheelchair bound visitors. A parking lot in front of the main entrance to the campus will provide space for 140 cars and 80 bicycles. There will be no driving on campus except for emergency vehicles.
The structure on the hill, which comprises four interconnected buildings in the middle of the area is the focal point of the campus. It will also be the dominant feature of the whole landscape of Pokrovskoe.
The elementary school, the middle school, and the high school are each housed in a separate building that includes all the main classrooms, administrative offices, recreational spaces, and health care facilities. All the classrooms are oriented to the south and the east to ensure the maximum sunlight during the academic year.
The three individual school buildings are connected with the fourth building, the Student Center that includes gyms, swimming pools, the conference rooms and cafeterias. The courtyard between the buildings is the main common area of the campus, where graduation and other major events will be held.
In the design of all the roofs of the educational complex the prefabricated glued and curved wooden structures are used, unifying different types of buildings.
In addition to the four main school buildings, there will be a stadium for 400 spectators, a separate day care center, a tea house, and maintenance shops. The area will include an artificial lake. An existing creek separates the campus into public and residential areas. There will be both dormitories for students and a hotel for teachers who are unwilling to fight the notorious Moscow traffic jams. The gross floor space of all the buildings is about 54,000 square meters. There will be ample space and perfect conditions for learning and recreation.
