The architects needed to create a high-tech and unique space – Sberbank's cybersecurity situational center. This space was associated with the "temple of technology", so the basis for the concept was a landmark building – the Solomon Guggenheim Museum in New York (architect Frank Lloyd Wright), which was conceived as a "temple of the spirit". The Heydar Aliyev Cultural Center (Zaha Hadid Architects Bureau) became the inspiration for bionic forms. It has created a more associative connection with "high technology".
The situation center is designed for 25 workplaces, the total area is 515 sq.m. There are forward and reverse projection screens around the perimeter of the room, their location and radius were specially calculated for the convenience of the employees' view. The Center is equipped with modern systems to ensure efficient and operational work in all areas of cybersecurity. The parameters of the space also made it possible to place a glass meeting room "floating" in the center under the ceiling.
In the process of work, the project has undergone many changes due to its technical complexity, but ideologically the implementation conveyed the spirit underlying the concept. Simplicity of forms, minimalism of materials and an emphasis on the most important - on information.
From the very beginning the office design provided for future reshaping of the office area, facilitating change in size and in the number of rooms. A special ceiling was selected to be connected with partition fixes.
The well-known real estate consulting company Cushman & Wakefield Stiles & Riabokobylko sought to unite all of its departments, scattered around Moscow, in a single space while moving into a new office.
