Corten steel retaining walls and benches from Punto Design have been used in the transformation of the former gas plant at Arma, once responsible for lighting most of Moscow, into a business area. This monument of industrial architecture is one of the key creative centres of the capital with a developed network of offices, restaurants and shops.
The firm of AM Sergey Kiselev & Partners, with their architects Igor Shvartsman, Vladimir Labutin, Alexey Medvedev, were responsible for designing this transformational project.
Punto Design manufactured corten steel retaining walls and benches for the Arma project.
Corten has a special oxide film applied using alloying elements (copper, chromium, nickel and phosphorus) so the metal is protected from aggressive external conditions - the material is used in shipbuilding and civil engineering in both structural and decorative components. Corten steel is easily identified by its distinctive red-brown colour.
The company's in-house design team, state-of-the-art production facilities, and ability to deliver excellent value for money were essential in delivering the finished features for this project.
