Astarta, first Green Certified Development in Ukraine


Task & Deliverables:

According to several rankings, Kyiv is amongst the worst cities for living. Yet, it used to be among the greenest cities in Europe. The challenge was to create a first sustainable “city within the city” development in Ukraine.

The project was completed together with the Ukrainian engineering partners and was officially open in 2016.  It required a comprehensive strategy and systems thinking: brand – business – sustainability – technology.

An inclusive brand and business strategy were successfully designed and implemented. They are based on the principles of innovation, systems thinking and sustainability for the mixed use and business centre development in the historic part of Kyiv, Ukraine.
