• Riverbank of the Ashkadar
    Design concept of Ashkadar river embankment area renovation actualises the history of Sterlitamak: it was here that the Salt Quay, which gave birth to the city, was located. The project responds to the citizens' request to renew city's public spaces.

    White marble rubble is used to dress the slope. Visually recalling the salt dumps, it becomes the hallmark of the embankment. The upper and lower levels of the promenade are linked by ramps, providing easy walking access and creating barrier-free environment. Hudaiberdin Street, which runs through the entire city, reaches the river and forms the link between the waterfront and the central square of the city's historical core. It emphasises pedestrian convenience, widens sidewalks, provides comfortable crossings, and includes active landscaping. A floating pontoon pier and wooden bridges will provide comfortable routes for walking and relaxing by the water. A bicycle lane is being laid on the embankment and the street, which will eventually be continued throughout the city.
