Our goal was to create a space of total concentration and one-pointedness in the business centre of the
bustling metropolis, where anyone can fully focus on their work.
The design concept was based on the idea of dividing the space into two contrasting areas:
The working area block is austere, transparent, advanced, lightweight;
The public space units are out of line, chaotic, compact, eye-catching.
The forms and arrangement of these areas made it possible for us to depart from the concept of a long
blank corridor and transform it into an integrated multifunctional space made up of lounge areas,
reception units and open space areas flowing one into another.
This partition is achieved not only through space zoning, but also through the use of proper materials.
To create maximum aeriality, the working area is framed by glass partitions down to the level of the
floor, with a minimal profile thickness. Carpet tiles were used on the floor to enhance acoustic comfort.
The public areas, on the other hand, are executed in a monolithic and blind manner to a greatest
possible extent, all of different materials. The meeting rooms are decorated with wood, the coffee point
has a finishing of concrete with terrazzo, the utility area and sanitary facilities abound in stainless steel.
The floor coating represents poured concrete of two colours: dark geometric shapes against a bright
background create an illusion of shadow falling from the public-area framing, which enhances the
contrast of the two zones.
The furniture by Danish and Italian manufacturers and the original stand lamps made according to our
sketches give a touch of brightness to the interior.
Particular attention was paid to the offices and their interior. Every office is a self-contained unit with an
open concept: this makes it possible to create a workspace according to particular requirements of any
company. All offices are well soundproofed owing to the use of up-to-date materials.
In combination with the custom-made furniture, this ensures excellent autonomy and does not restrain
The greatest challenge in creating the minimalist interior was the extensive utilities and lots of structural
elements in combination with a non-standard layout executed as a part of the Reuleaux triangle.
However, the unconventional approach helped us not only to resolve these difficulties, but also to
reproduce the standard functional areas in a new way. In addition, the attention to detail, coupled with
non-mainstream design, helped us to create an unusual design code that became the hallmark of the
