Yandex is the biggest and leading internet company in Russia, CIS and Russian-speaking countries. The Yandex office in Moscow is the 2nd office by za bor architects designed for this company. The office occupies all seven floors in one of two wings in the newly constructed business center «Krasnaya Roza» (eng: Red Rose) in Moscow. The wing is close to rectangle in section and consequently the office space is concentrated around the technical core with riser pipes. This construction peculiarity made it necessary to create sanitary facilities and other premises that demand water use — such as kitchens and coffee points — around them.
