Text description provided by the architects. The agency had a wish to obtain an «unusual and creative space», separately discussed were areas for placement of a large number of exhibition samples.  Thus the office room size was quite small — only 450 sq.m., however the premises had many interesting features: once there was a plant located in this building so it had very high ceilings, brick walls and huge window apertures.

Since the client wanted to have creative atmosphere, thus having quite tangible budget restrictions, in the course of the project development a lot of interesting solutions were demonstrated: for example to create a larger space the second level was partially built (lifted on metal beams and supports), on which a server-based meeting room, the chief manager’s office and a small sports hall was located; most walls were cleaned and covered with water repellent for bricks; one of the meeting-rooms was covered with long-napped carpet; almost all large-size furniture was designed by za bor architects and manufactured locally.  In particular there was designed a still «bar counter» which also serves as a reception — workplace of the secretary, as well as wooden desktops, plywood flower holders and cases for samples. Working chair model is SAYL by Herman Miller, in the meeting zone and bar zone Pedralli and Arper chairs are used.

As a result the office demonstrates plenty of non-standard solutions and strongly differs from usual laconic office style, and thus it was possible to have the final cost of the project considerably reduced.
