The Moscow office of IO and Stampsy is located in a hall that used to be an assembly room of the Komsomol Central Committee. Until 1991, the Komsomol administration had been headquartered in the building with distinct constructivist features. The companies' co-working space is located in its assembly hall. Before it was created here, the whole space had been divided into tiny offices each of the size of a phone booth. The walls were decorated with wooden panels, which provided a recognizable interior style of Soviet offices of 1970s.

The task of the architects was to restore the space back to its original view with minimal investments, and to partly save original textures and interior elements.
