The beautiful panoramic views of the Moskva river opening from the 15th floor, on which the office was located, contributed to the theme of «Water» in the design of the office.
The rather dense office layout, large number of work places in the open space, panoramic windows and numerous glass partitions left only ceiling for architects to experiment with design. We were able to combine design with practicality: the chosen form of the ceiling enchanted the acoustics, dispersing and absorbing the sound. The monochrome grey-white palette was enlivened with light wood, warm colors and corporate turquoise.
The lighting of the open space was developed to complement the “wave” ceiling – linear lamps, arranged in parallel to the wave crests, emphasize their volume and create glares, enlivening them. Strict, linear, saturated office design is diluted with unobtrusive theme of waves and water, accompanied by white and clear, light and shadow contrasts and reflected in the ceiling and matting designs.
The architects were set a clear task: it was necessary to use the area of the four business center floors to maximum effectiveness and organize workplaces for the greatest number of employees of the law firm.
Moving into the newly built BREEAM certified modern business center of A Class "Arcus III” has been considered not only as a technical consolidation of two Moscow offices, but also as an opportunity for qualitative improvement of workspaces.
