ADDRESS 71, ul. B. Gruzinskaya, Four Winds Plaza, 8-9 floors
The new office of the international investment bank Morgan Stanley is located on the 8th and 9th floors of the new business center«Four Winds Plaza». The specifics of the building were reflected the planning of the office. The long zigzag of a corridor in the guest area repeats the irregular perimeter of the internal atrium. The atrium, which initially seemed the most difficult part of the design to develop connections and joints of finishing materials, in the end became the core of the office and its exclusive interior mark.
The reception area is characterized by its scale and the polished details. This ceremonial premise is strict and welcoming at the same time, owing to the combination of two wood types, neutral-black floor and behind-cornice lighting. The interior of the reception uses elements of corporate style designed for the London office of Morgan Stanley by British architects - original carpet and wooden structures on the windows of that atrium. VIP area and the reception desk are made from drawings of ABD architects.
The design of the office is a well-balanced combination of the company’s needs for open workspaces and offices. The architects were tasked with a possible redevelopment and transformation of the offices in the future. A special assembly junction for partition systems of suspension ceiling was developed, that doesn’t affect the metal perforated ceiling plates. The backbone of the workspace on the 9th floor is a trading hall, equipped with special furniture that was planned and mounted on the floor with millimeter precision.
Our new office look and feel is very good and the design blends in well with our Corporate Guidelines. Both your design and Project Management team have demonstrated to be able to respond to Client demands, flexible to overcome site difficulties, competent to navigate through challenging bureaucracy and always accommodating with the many Morgan Stanley parties who had to integrate their input with your design.
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.
