By the request of the Committee for Architecture and Urban Planning of Moscow and the Main Architectural and Planning Office of Moscomarchitecture recommendations on improvement of city street navigation were developed at the studio. The recommendations are assembled into a guide book and cover typefaces, colors, pictograms and layout principles for house number and street name plates.
Pedestrian zone plates
Pedestrian zones in Moscow are made up by small streets with narrow sidewalks and facade buildings many of which are historic landmarks. These streets are used by residents for leisure and are included in many walking and tourist guides, making aesthetics of house plates especially important.
The plates are typeset conforming to the technical documentation approved by the Moscow authorities and based on available manufacturing capabilities. Different formats are available for use with long and short names of city toponyms.
