In Kyiv a Lego-like residential complex

Archimatika used ‘block development’ principle to design the Comfort Town, a residential complex that brings colour to a district in Kiev.

The architects at Archimatika – Dmytro Vasyliev, Aleksandr Popov and Olga Alfiorova – found inspiration in the small and colorful building blocks for their new project: Comfort Town, a housing project in Kyiv, Ukraine.

They were asked to transform the district into a place where people would actually want to live, so they decided to paint the building, combining bright shades and pastels. In dialogue with the Soviet minimalism of the city, the architects designed simple geometric shapes for the buildings and completely flat facades, with no balconies.

With a a 3.7-acre outdoor sports facility, a sizable fitness club and 14,763-square-foot retail section, this new district has been heavily embraced by the city’s younger generations of families and professionals, which seems appreciate an easier and funnier way to live the city.
