New Navigation In Barnaul

New Navigation In Barnaul

Activists of "Civilized City" Association solved the navigation problem in Barnaul. They came up with a single design of street signs based on the traditional form of local pointers of the 70s. Until now, Barnaul did not have a unified standard navigation: each street had its own plate design. In addition, street signs and house numbers were just few.

      It was proposed to use for names the Manufacture font as a primary one. House number contains information about extreme houses of the quarter. The project won the city competition and now the issue of manufacturing technology is being decided. So far, the new address plates can be seen only in one place: on the city administration building.

      "The convex shape of the plate makes it more recognizable and allows illuminating it from inside. We assumed the usual, classical form as a basis and only slightly brought it up to scratch. On new signs is used a new, unique font. Also, we decided to abandon black color and offered more architectural and live one: the terracotta. Contrary to the common misconception that the numbers on the sides of the house plate inform of neighboring buildings, these figures indicate the last houses, located at the next crossroads (extreme in the quarter)".
