"The shopping and entertainment complex will become an example of synthesis in modern trends in design and construction and thinking of architects of the new generation. Not only its scales are amazing in this architectural object, but its courageous planning decisions as well," said Alexander Popov Director of design group Archimatika.
The accented entrance groups, smoothness of front forms, wide range of shopping and entertaining objects, light galleries with green recreation areas and the lamps scattered like faceted lazurites, will organize a 1.6 km promenade unprecedented still in Ukraine.
Only in Respublika will you be able to see such a huge main central atrium which will be illuminated by eight light lamps with a general glazing surface of nearly 2,000 m² – they exceed the area of a football field! The size of the elliptic atrium will surpass all expectations.
Architects of the complex have worked diligently to create original rest areas, having placed them on bridges. It will allow visitors to watch from above what is going on in the most crowded places in the shopping and entertainment complex.
