One Works was appointed to design an impressive new road network and tunnel system drawn from local inspirations. The overall design represents simultaneous flowing waves, in harmony with the general unique spirit of Baku, a city that faces on the Caspian Sea. Inspirations drawn from the local traditional stone cladding guided the four new road tunnels finishing’s, interpreted to match the conception of a modern day city.
The challenge has been to depict an image using clean smooth lines and high-quality architectural details conducive to road design, making sure that the architectural elements cause no distraction to drivers. The colours employed, not affected by dust or cars exhausts, originate from Baku’s natural environment and highlight the design concept.
