Za Bor Architects are from a Moscow based architectural office and just completed the 4th internet company office for Yandex.The entire office was designed having large and small conference rooms accompanied with a sports hall, kitchen, coffee stations, and chamber communication ‘cells’.
It is designed for people who are used to spending most of their time in front of computers and do not pay much attention to the world outside, so you will notice the lack of windows and the narrow space between offices. However, the furniture is really comfortable and ergonomic, making sure it does not cause any health problems after a long stay in the chair.
I noticed the private corners where there are two comfy chairs around a small coffee table, where you can get refuge for a short break or to have some small chat or a more serious conversation with your boss, colleague or partner, whatever might be the case. So you can have a bit of privacy in the middle of a huge office with lots of employees. The wooden cover of the walls makes the rooms warmer and more welcoming, making you feel less in an office and more like at home, which is beneficial for the employees’ mood and perception. So, nothing is random in building this office and every detail is carefully examined.
