The new residential complex Nexpo Trend is located along the monumental axis of Astana, which starts from the Baiterek monument and ends with the largest mosque in Central Asia. The location of the facility at the intersection of Kabanbai Batyr Avenue and T. Ryskulov Street provides residents with access to only a few minutes' walk from the city center. Ryskulov provides residents with access not only to various cultural centers, parks, but also relevant in the scale of the capital of socially important objects, including health care facilities.
There are 9 residential blocks with variable number of storeys from 9 to 22 on the projected plot. For the convenience of residents, a roof-parking is provided, with the possibility of exploiting the area for necessary needs, including children's and sports grounds. Blocks of the first two floors are allocated for commerce and provision of services for residents.
The variety of functions in the new neighborhood gives people the opportunity to work, rest and live in one area. The main advantage of living in a mixed-use complex is that there is no need for daily commuting to work, the supermarket or the entertainment center.
The number of storeys decreases closer to the medical cluster in the south, and increases towards EXPO, where monumental proportions of architecture dominate. In addition, in Nexpo Trend the tower volumes are broken down into several visual belts. Greater detailing is provided at the pedestrian level to create a visually appealing, safe, stimulating urban environment that encourages people to walk.
The architecture of the commercial reflects the contemporary character of the neighborhood. The commercial line consists of two floors with large stained glass windows, with the white plastic element on the roof extending forward, not only giving an inviting and attractive silhouette to the commercial facades, but also protecting them from the weather. The plastic columns, which dilute the strict and orderly rhythm of the facades, are a distinctive element of the complex. As visual reference points, the project also uses small architectural forms in the form of arches, referring to the culture and architecture of the country, emphasizing the identity of Kazakhstan.
The finishing of the ground floor is made in a combination of granite and clinker. The exterior walls of the residential complex are clad with light-colored aluminum composite panels. Stained glass systems in combination with enameled glass aesthetically complement the external appearance of the object. The design of the complex is made in restrained colors and in a strict rhythm. Each block differs from the neighboring ones in shape, storey and combination of materials, but harmoniously fit into a single style. Thus, the residents of the complex can distinguish their homes and feel a stronger attachment.
