One Trinity Place is an outstanding example of cutting-edge European architecture in St Petersburg, perfectly situated between the green parks and recreational attractions of Krestovsky Island and the prime retail and business districts of the historic city.
Setting a new standard for twenty-first century living in Russia, the design bears the signature of its internationally acclaimed English master architects, Squire & Partners. The limestone and granite façade makes it a dynamic landmark in Petrogradsky’s thriving commercial and residential district. Yet its neo-classical profile maintains continuity with neighbouring historic palaces and details like the blue mosaic panelling are subtly allusive to the Church of the Saviour on Blood.
"At One Trinity Place we’ve created a classically proportioned building with subtle bronze and blue detailing that references nineteenth century neo-classical neighbours. We’ve fused that European style of ornate delicacy with Russia’s later heroic and elemental modernism to produce a twenty-first century apartment building that looks confidently out to the world and to a new future for St Petersburg. From the moment you walk in the door, One Trinity Place is a precisely calibrated experience full of light, space and a sense of coming home"
The building’s horseshoe plan is ingeniously designed so that most of the apartments’ reception rooms enjoy views of the river and Krestovsky Island, whilst bedrooms benefit from the quiet south-facing courtyard garden. The combination of hard and soft landscaping - including a raised podium plaza with a woodland walk developed with UK landscape designers Gillespies - weaves together on different levels to create a strong spatial boundary around One Trinity Place’s private dominion, that separates it from the hubbub of the street. At ground floor level there’s an imposing reception area, library, work space, fitness centre, kindergarten and retail outlets for high-end cafés and shops.
