ZiL facade Moscow

Project - April 2019


ZiL was a legendary Russian manufacturer of automobiles and vehicles based in Moscow that unfortunately ceased operations in 2012. The former ZiL factory site is now being turned into a modern residential area.

Building No. 17 from this so-called ZILART project was designed by DROM in collaboration with MEGANOM and will boast a sculptural facade which was developed by Lion Beach in collaboration with DROM. The tile design hints at the legendary past of ZiL factory by using robust shapes and brute forms, characteristics that are typical of the ZiL design language.
