Bolshevik Factory / John McAslan + Partners
The Bolshevik Factory comprises 17 buildings of varying ages and styles, including listed buildings dating from 1884 which were the first buildings in Moscow to boast electric light. The 50,000 sqm redevelopment will feature covered 'streets' and office space with exceptional views over Moscow city and beyond. The scheme is a model of adaptive re-use, transforming an important example of the city's great industrial heritage into a high quality environment for contemporary commercial use.
Denis captured a remarkable sequence of photographs for us at the Bolshevik Factory In Moscow. Although the buildings , volumes and spaces we created were inherently photogenic Denis breathed life into the development somehow wonderfully finding compositions filled with light and activity that no other photographer had seen previously. Architecture is ultimately about People not just the design of Buildings and this was the quality that Denis found and expressed so beautifully in his pictures and is one of his unique gifts as an Artist.
