The Sea Facade port in St. Petersburg is a unique specialized passenger port located in the alluvial areas of Vasilyevsky Island.
The port complex includes seven berths with a total length of 2171.06 meters for receiving ocean liners up to 340 meters long, three cruise lines and one specialized cruise terminal.
The port project was developed by a group of architects and engineers under the leadership of S.I. Oreshkin. The sea terminals of the port are solved by the authors in a single space-planning solution. Sloping visors and columns located under them became the main compositional focus of the building of the marine station. According to S.I. Oreshkin, “while designing one of the largest ports in Europe, we proposed the shape of a building in the form of a twisted roll, but in the course of its refinement the terminal turned into a modular object with a prominent technical design.”
The project was awarded the Diploma of the international architectural festival "Architecture 2007".
Construction of the new port in the Neva Bay began in 2005, and in September 2008, the port received the first ship with passengers on board. On May 27, 2011, after the completion of construction and commissioning, the Passenger Port of Saint Petersburg “Sea Facade” was transferred to the city.
