S.Oreshkin: “We did not want to use the classic architecture motives. However we understood that the competition jury will rather prefer architecture that appeals to classics but not a modern decision. We designed a metal transparent house-veil. All the organization departments were located inside this volume and formatted a very sophisticated atrium space.”
The building is covered with a transparent cubic volume – the metal net, including the stained-glass panel of three office blocks. The office volumes have a variable height. The internal triangle-shaped atrium goes through the building, with terraces designed around it. The atrium stained-glass constructions and the first floor glazing provide for airiness and dynamics of the building interiors.
