On 10 June 2015, Rem Koolhaas and Dasha Zhukova opened the new Garage Museum in Moscow’s Gorky Park. Werner Sobek engineered structures, facades and MEP for this ambitious transformation of a Soviet-era cafeteria. The former Vremena Goda (Seasons of the Year) restaurant was converted into an art gallery. OMA‘s design for the 5,400 m² building includes exhibition galleries on two levels, a creative center for children, shop, café, auditorium and offices. The design preserved original Soviet-era elements – including a large mosaic, tiles, and brick – while incorporating a range of innovative architectural and curatorial devices. Amongst other things Werner Sobek’s engineering comprised the design of a double skin façade made out of polycarbonate units at the outside and inside. The cavity of the double skin façade is preconditioned to guarantee climate conditions suitable for art galleries.
