In modern society, people tend to communicate, but at the same time, do not mind to retire in the apartment. A man comes home from work often spends his free evenings at home. Such a way of life and contributes to a very cold climate Rosii, because in the cold for a long time can not be on the street.
The basis of the project ideas are taken primarily chelvecheskie factors. City - municipality - is a single living organism. There are people living primarily related to the interests of one (scientists, civil servants, or simply people with a common interest), as well as the generations of families who seemed to live at home, but at the same time together. City - the commune is covered with a dome - a symbol of the Russian people. Residents will be very convenient to walk cold winter evenings in the warm dome on the common areas, terraces.

The basis of the design are taken Kerto-S LVL beam and Kerto-Q LVL panel.
