Singing Springs Park is a valuable reflection of Belebeevsky district identity - the land of healing springs. It hosts big events, and guests from other towns come here to relax. The project reveals the natural potential of the territory and invites visitors to interact with water.

The authors of the project unlocked the landscape potential and proposed the park zoning for different scenarios and ages. The central element is a pond. The existing ecosystem has been preserved in the park, convenient ramps to water and a comfortable beach have appeared. There are pavilions on the waterfront where you can buy takeaway food.

In the forest part, The Bublik – a pavilion with transparent walls and an inner courtyard – appeared on the site of a former dance floor . The Bublik hosts exhibitions and workshops; local craftspeople work there. All park objects are made of local materials: wood, metal, glass and concrete.

Agidel is a young town built on the banks of the river bearing the same name. It was planned as a town for employees of the Bashkir Nuclear Power Plant, but its construction was canceled. Today, it is a quiet and comfortable town.

The project includes a network of neighborhood public spaces which handle main pedestrian traffic. There will be sports and children's playgrounds, an amphitheater with a stage for small events, as well as places for quiet rest. All spaces are united by the images of Agidel's waves and Soviet modernism, which can be traced in small architectural forms.

Lenina Square has retained historic elements, and an amphitheater appeared around the perimeter using natural relief. There is more greenery around the square: young trees and perennials. On the premises of an abandoned brewery, the Zerno space was constructed with skate and street ball sites. Both sites feature OtkrӨY (ӨPEN) pavilions (ӨЙ stands for house in Tatar and Bashkir languages).

As a result of the upgrade, Dyurtyuli now welcomes visitors from different regions of the country; 4 times more urban residents now visit the square and the skate park (according to MTS and Megafon big data analytics).

The center of Meleuz being a part of the Ekaterininsky Highway is a historically established center of merchant trade, which gave rise to the town's growth. The shopping and entertainment functions of the place are being revived in a contemporary interpretation.

The concept of the project is the revitalization of the historic center of Meleuz: it combines old houses, the square and the banks of the Meleuz River. The area is roughly divided into 6 zones: a riverfront, an event site, a playground, a sports zone, the space around merchant Bayazitov's house and walking paths between administrative buildings. A large parking lot became a public space, and residents got the opportunity to go down to the river.

The town is located on the banks of the Dyoma River and divided into two parts by a railroad. Urban residents lack access to water, thought-out street lighting, and comfortable sidewalks, now they receive an interconnected system of public spaces and an upgraded convenient town center.

The concept of Throughline: Streets of Davlekanovo Through Time Project consists of several zones: the town's central part, Red Square, a waterfront and convenient pedestrian links between them.

All zones are united by uniform stylistic solutions and design code. An additional binding element will be a bike path that will run throughout the renovated space.

Lenina Prospect, which was chosen for upgrade, has gone a long way from the transit road which was used to transport grain to the railway to the central avenue. Today it connects all the main town's locations and is always full of people, but the space is in dire need of a new look and reinterpretation.

The aim of the project is to create a new type of a street for this town as a type of a public space and organize infrastructure for comfortable pastime for all groups of residents.

All the areas of redevelopment will obtain new landscaping both mobile planters and shrubs and perennials.
