Sochi Winter Olympics Complex

sports complex

The steep banks of the magnificent Volga River will be enlivened with this unique 300,000sqm sports-led project in Russia’s historic City of Nizhny Novgorod. Olympic Ski Jumps with grandstanding, indoor skiing, skating, aqua park and spas are combined to compliment lively shopping and restaurant environments, with a 4-Star hotel and apartments located on a fine wooded site overlooking the river. Counterpointing the infamous Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin, the design respects the natural topography of the site and 17thC Pechersky Monastery nearby. Otherwise fluid and low-lying in form, the project is defined with an iconic and expressive 125m Ski Jump and a dramatic cantilevered hotel.
