The basis of the composition is the principle of integration of this territory into the public space of the city and the disclosure of the historical potential of the site. The task was to open the access of the population to the sea in this area and to connect the continuous axis Artbuhtu and Chersonese Tavrichesky. For this purpose, two variants of the pedestrian route — the «bottom» and the «upper» — were laid, which pass through the main sign points of the memory of this site-Bastion No. 7, Battery No. 8, Alexandrovskaya Battery, Battery No. 10.
To create a continuous pedestrian connection, the transit of cars through the Artbuhty square, the combination of Kapitanskaya and Katernaya streets, public transport lanes and bicycle paths was excluded. The number of passes through the park is minimized and is used only for servicing of institutions located on the territory. The intersection of cars and pedestrians is also excluded by using hanging pedestrian roads. All designed parking lots are underground.
The site is divided into several alternating functional zones — cultural and entertainment and educational. The choice of the location of the zones is based on key points in the history of the territory. Functional zoning is supported by the general concept of landscaping on the site. Such types as coniferous forest, birch groves and deciduous forests, wheat, poppy, lavender fields, tall grasses are used.
The following objects are projected on the site:
— Museum and memorial complex of the heroic defense of Sevastopol
— multifunctional cultural and exhibition center with a capacity of 1000 seats
— film-concert complex for 3000 seats with an amphitheater per 1000 seats
— recreational and museum complex «10th coastal battery», as well as yacht marinas, observation platforms, city beach, Artillery Bay square.
Pedestrian routes are based on the alternation of open spaces and forests.
