One step, and you are closer to the Cathedral of Christ the Savior or to the monument to Peter the Great. The architect Skuratov managed to dissolve the surrounding space in the facade of glass elements located in different planes.
This play of glass, reflections of buildings, sun rays and trees — gives lightness and versatility to the entire Cooper House complex. On the first floor of the building with a glass facade, we see the practical application of Le Corbusier’s ideas.
The genius of architecture called for the use of the first floors of houses — as territories uniting residents. Behind the showcase glazing of the first floor, we have several details of the perspective of the residential complex, namely the facade finished with copper panels. Copper color — Tiffany color.
As a photographer, this project will be of interest to me for many years to come. Everyone knows that the Moscow climate is not very favorable for finishing elements of facades made of natural materials. The copper will oxidize and the color of the facades will give new ideas for photography. The Golden Mile is very difficult, just as Cooper House is not simple — and in this not simplicity it is good.
