The aim of the project was to create a multifunctional complex, which in its scale and form, fulfils urban fabric and transforms existing thinking into new ideas of democratization of an     urban space. The concept design fundamentals were conditions of unsettled competition for an International Business Centre and Hotel in Yerevan. However, potential of plot location and deeper analysis of the nature of the place gives a wider information range that goes beyond the competition guidelines. They perceived the importance of location through the prism of history, culture, politics, sociology or even its geology. The Azurite Point focuses on creating a complex as one hybrid building, that acts like a precisely balanced body, raised up by solutions in architectural scale.

Relying on lengthy analysis, a group of principles on which design processes are run, was created. Analysed topographical conditions, urban environment and programmed functions allow for conscious structure modelling. The complex space is divided into two zones – internal and external. The structure is based on plot platform, which is rising partly beyond terraces up to the north-east part of the plot. Modelled form gives the impression of a compact structure, vibrating onto the next complex segments. Plane composition placed on overall form, creates a highly dynamic layout, a dominant object in the surrounding buildings. Various functions coupled together were composed as one system that generates a high number of users and assumes in this way Azurite Point is a profitable investment. Programmed building exploration time is extended to maximum, gaining by that sequential usage and full-time activity of complex. That systematically allows an adequate number of users throughout the period of time and individual zones isolated in selected moments of the day. Like in nature, the designed building is composed of a number of functions and their relations, creating a cohesive, well-functioning organism.
