The “OKO” project consists of two towers – one being 85 and the other 49 storeys high, which soar up to the sky from a single clear “crystal” at the base of the complex. The buildings consist of both residential and office facilities, occupying approximately the same amount of space: the offices take up 122 493 square meters and the residential apartments take up 122 507 square meters of the complex. The American bureau SOM (Skidmore, Owings and Merrill) is the architect of this complex.
The concept of “OKO” is the perfection of simple geometric forms, their seamless integration into the center of business life in Moscow, as well as a play on contrast, thanks to which this project will become the “visual center” of the Moscow International Business Center.
