The name Corti Quattro comes from the four courts that were created in the volume to deliver the highest local light. The colors that distinguishes these four courts are gold, green, pale blue and red, inspired by the rich colors of the facades of historic buildings in St. Petersburg.
All building facades are transparent, mirrored glass made in the four colors. The glass panels are a variety of inclinations and rotated at an angle to the edge of the facade, the result is a fragmentation of the reflections in the mirrored glass and a kaleidoscopic effect, encouraged by changes in sunlight during the course of the day .
