중앙시장 리뉴얼 프로젝트에서 우리가 주목해야 할 점은
공간의 새로움이 아니라 과거에 영광을 재현함에 있습니다. 이것은 또한 전통에 대한 존중
이기도 합니다. 백화점과 에스컬레이터로 연결되는 중앙시장은 19세기 소비에트 연방시절의
컬러풀하고 아름다운 시장을 현대적 감각의 모던함으로 재현합니다.
메자닛 층으로 구성되는 커다란 중앙 홀은 2,000 제곱미터 공간안에 후레쉬 푸드, 핫푸드 카운터,
카페, 바, 레스토랑 그리고 3개의 아웃도어 테라스를 포함합니다.
특히 천장면에 설치된 뷔텡 스테인레스 스틸은 시장내부의 다양한 컬러와 움직임을
투영 및 반사시키는데 이것은 시장의 활동적인 에너지를 배가 시켜
공간적 활력을 유도하는 촉매제로 사용됩니다.

Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands’ design-driven interior reinvents the traditional market in Moscow, Russia.
If you take the escalators to the top of Tsvetnoy Central Market, a luxury department store in central Moscow, you are greeted by a buzzing food hall filled with fresh produce, hot food counters, cafés, bars, restaurants and three outdoor terraces with breathtaking views.
The whole space, which includes a mezzanine level, is dominated by a striking 2,000-sq-m ceiling made from beaten stainless steel. It reflects the movement and colours of the food market back down to the ground floor through two full-height atria. ‘The idea of a strong visual connection from the lower floors to the food hall played a big part in the development of the concept,’ says project director Chris Waite of London-based architectural practice Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands.
Working closely with food consultants Ford McDonald, Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands was keen to bring back the colourful atmosphere and spirit of Moscow’s 19th-century flower stalls and Central Market; the former ran along the street outside while the latter stood on the site of the current department store and was popular in Soviet times.
‘At its height, the market was packed with produce from right across
the union, as well as goods imported from central Asia. It had a
souk-like appeal,’ explains Waite. The feature ceiling has 2,600
individual panels with customized shapes and embossed patterns.
Capturing the moving shoppers, the surface becomes a constantly changing
element. ‘The effect is dazzling,’ says Waite with evident pride.
