Yandex Saint Petersburg III by Za Bor architects

Russian studio Za Bor Architects has completed the third design stage of the Yandex offices in Saint Petersburg. The Russian Internet company which operates the largest search engine in Russia, wanted to see this project as an office which would complement the already existing offices of the company located in Benois Business Centre.

At the planning stage the space was developed as something in between the second office with large original objects and the first, calmer, one – there has appeared a complex architectural geometry emphasized with bright colors in places. Just like in other offices, in this office there have been created small cell zones for informal communication of 2-3 persons, which are located along the long corridor piercing the floor of the business center.

For the construction of this office there have been actively used synthetic materials of the last generation, which meet the highest ecology and fire safety demands. These are linoleum and photo wallpapers which cover the complex broken objects in the corridor, dining-room and library. The office has quite complex ceiling elements, such as white blades hanging from the walls. Although having decorative function, they also help to absorb sound along with the sound absorbing materials used in the office finishing.

Complex geometrically elements in the corridor and bright color spots help the office guests and employees get oriented in its space, which is topical considering the length of the corridor. Complex elements have been made to order via construction building method at the spot. It is interesting that in this project even multicolored lamps that can be seen under the ceiling in the corridor, have been made to order.
