Brusnika was founded in Tyumen, Siberia in 2004 with the aim to develop create mass housing projects. Brusnika is now among the 10 largest housing developers in Russia with a yearly output of 200.000 sqm (4000 units) and has realised projects in 6 Russian cities. It has three offices with a total of 700 employees: in Tyumen, in Novosibirsk and in Ekaterinburg, where the company moved its head office in 2015.

Due to a continuous drive towards innovation Brusnika is the most progressive housing developer in the country. Brusnika was the first to introduce architectural and urban innovations in low cost housing that were only used on a small scale in elite housing projects in central Moscow. These include the design of public space, courtyards without cars and landscaping. Inside the buildings innovations include street level glazed entrance halls and ergonimically designed apartments. Moreover, by hiring leading Russian and foreign architecture firms the housing blocks have a pronounced architecture that enriches the urban context.

In 2014, Bursnika teamed up with Dutch architect and founder of PROJECT RUSSIA magazine Bart Goldhoorn. Frustrated by the failure of Western European concepts of housing design in Russia, Goldhoorn devised a new approach to mass housing that combines standardisation and customisation. This enables Brusnika to continue to improve it’s products: the development of new solutions is not any more limited by the project development cycle, but can be tested and improved over a long period of time. This enbles a higher level of sophistication and cost control.

Sustainable business is able to combine social expectations and its own economic interests.

Brusnika consists of companies with the same name in Ekaterinburg, Novosibirsk (SP Sibakademstroy), Tyumen, Surgut and Moscow. The companies have a common vector of development and unified management. We are proud of the cities in which we build.

For more than 10 years specialists of Brusnika have been studying how to design a building, how to create a living and working environment around it with an optimal combination of functions. To develop the core competencies, our Company has created three subdivisions, which allow us to pay attention to many details. There are three main areas: Design of houses, General contracting function and House management.

We understand development as a constant process of transformation of the city and the space in which people live. The details that make life better are important for us. It is a daily conscientious work for the employees of Brusnika.
