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 plot area of about 500 hectares proposed for the EXPO is located in the western part of the city on the picturesque shore of the Upper Iset pond, 3 km from the center of Ekaterinburg and close to the border that separates the European and Asian parts of Russia.
The office interior of the famous cosmetic company Estee Lauder leaves a feeling of lightness, agility and transparency, which is achieved through clear zoning, extensive use of glass and light-colored finishes.
