Northern River Terminal, Moscow 2020

The Northern River Terminal, also known as the Five Seas port

Punto Design as Manufacturers

   The Northern River Terminal, also known as the Five Seas port is a popular Moscow landmark. In various years it has served as a harbor, a venue for making films and a place for romantic walks. In the 90s, the river terminal building was handed over to restaurants and offices. In 2010, it was closed due to dilapidated condition, needing high-quality renewal...

 

   It was the first river station in the USSR that was constructed under idea of moving away from a purely functional approach and pay attention to the aesthetic side. The successful synthesis of architecture, sculpture and painting made the station building an outstanding example of the Stalinist Empire style.

 

   Built in 1937, the Northern River Terminal is one of two river transport stations in Moscow. Abandoned in 2010, the terminal and its surrounding park are now undated and opened as a museum and recreation center.

 

   The building of the North River Station on the bank of the Moscow Canal and surrounding territory were finally transformed after big reconstruction in 2020.

The improvement of the park area was the culmination of the renovation. More than three thousand shrubs and over four thousand square meters of flowerbeds were planted on 49 hectares! During the autumn-winter period seven thousand trees were planted in the park.

   Punto Design Company made a big difference to the improvement of the River Station territory. Several collections of outdoor benches, comfortable sun lounges, litter bins, bicycle racks, planters and even tables for playing chess! All these products are made in one style. Company used environmentally friendly wood and galvanized steel with powder coating. Due to these factors the products have an increased level of reliability and a unique, unforgettable design.
