Situated in a new urban development in the forests just outside of Moscow, the 500-meter shopping street was designed to form an entrance to a luxury hotel and casino, as well as 60 high-end shops, such as Prada, Gucci, Rolls Royce and Yves Saint Laurent.

For the design, West 8 chose to use Dutch clay bricks, a very uncommon paving material for Russia. The incorporated two intertwining patterns result in a lively sequence of lines, which complement the wooden façades of the shops. The pavement is perforated in several places with round green ‘pockets’, in which pine trees and seasonal flowers were planted.
