The designers of the Russian Studio Za Bor Architects has created a cheerful and bright design of the new headquarters of Yandex Office II, which began its work in St. Petersburg. It is significant that this project is to some extent a return to the roots of cooperation of Za Bor Architects and one of the largest Russian IT-company Yandex. The first office was designed by designers for Yandex, located in the same building of the business center Benua in Saint Petersburg, but on the floor below.
New office created four years after the first and is located on the fourth floor, covers a total area of 3310 square meters. The architects had at least two major challenges — first to organize a very complex space extending along the Central axis of the corridor, and secondly, to make the office showy and impressive.
After long hesitation, architects Arseniy Borisenko and Peter Zaytsev decided to use imaginative ways of functional zoning of space.
As a result of implementation of the concept, guests and employees of the Corporation are "inside" the search service of Yandex. Walking through the corridors, you can see recognizable icons of the company and familiar characters that have grown to enormous size.
