The office for IT department of the PETSHOP company is located in St. Petersburg, on Chkalovsky avenue, in a Soviet industrial building of 50th – 60th years of the 20th century. Ridge ceiling and concrete columns more than 4 meters high, the top floor and huge windows overlooking the Petrograd Side – these are a fine introduction of space for the creative department of the modern dynamic company.
The aesthetics of Bauhaus (the higher school in Dessau and the architectural direction of the first third of 20th century) has become a basis of style and the main source of inspiration. Simple laconic forms, utilitarian approach and the ideas of functionalism once has made a revolution in architecture. Now we transfer this esthetics to interior design, but only its decorative part. The interior stylistics of co-working and office spaces of modern New York also had a great influence on this interior mix.
In office space planning the most representative meeting room has become the main object and emphasis, receiving the laconic rounded forms and the central position in “the heart”, dividing other open space into two «wings» – a zone of graphic designers (for twenty people) and a zone of IT specialists (for thirty people).
The second “key” object, an amphitheater, is located near the meeting room. It is a universal lecture hall suitable for short meetings, free time, activities and other.
This beautiful and intelligent space, “not-like-office-project-looking”, is designed to give comfort and the right vibes to creative employees, that they could find inspiration, harmony and the new amazing ideas.
