John McAslan + Partners' Bolshevick Factory in Moscow  


The Bolshevik Factory on Leningradsky Prospekt comprises a wide range of buildings of varying ages and significance, including historic elements dating from 1884 which were the first buildings in Moscow to boast electric light. The 50,000 sqm redevelopment features internal covered ‘streets’ and office space with exceptional views over Moscow city and beyond. This distinctive red brick building, founded in 1855 by Adolf Sioux as a perfume and confectionery factory, has now been sensitively restored and transformed by John McAslan + Partners: the scheme is a model of adaptive re-use, transforming an important example of the city’s great industrial heritage into a high quality, mixed use environment for contemporary commercial use.
