Text description provided by the architects. In the beginning M3 architects had focused the attention to a functional zoning for IT-office. After the research they understood that existing solutions can be improved. A spacious co-working, the center of Kiev, the developed infrastructure, good transportation are not enough. Architects have decided to create the perfect office for IT-experts and relocate the office from main streets to a green suburb.

Floor Plan 02

Architects analyzed the details of IT-experts schedule and conditions of work. The main issue of the project to improve the conditions of work for IT-professionals in accordance with their actual needs and lifestyle.

1. IT expert doesn’t work in by the work schedule of the big city (9: 00-18: 00), his daily rhythm is the deadline.

2. To place even the best office in the city center is inefficient because of the traffic, high cost areas.

3. Specificity of the organization requires additional, non-standard solutions function workspace, entailing an increase in the nominal minimum space required for one specialist.

4. It is no secret by the results of research that most of the developers are introverts who prefer a quiet and comfortable life. There was born the idea of a universal-office module for IT-company.


Architects developed the concept of an independent module with its own infrastructure. This module was developed as the first "brick" for the future IT-city. There was developed a complete ecosystem, micro- infrastructure, which can be the beginning for the adjacent areas development.

As an example M3 architects chose Luxoft company. It is a leading company in the field of software development and innovative IT solutions. To develop the 1st unit there was choosen the area in a 20-minute transportation from the center of Kiev.

The shape is based on the classic form. It is a box. It was divided into 4 functional zones

There was important to organize an internal courtyard. In the point of necessary issues and the idea of technologies the box changed its shape.

A simple geometry of the yard also had been changed. The selection of  façade’s materials was determined by the idea of modern technology. The market of IT- technologies is transparent and architects find new unique products daily. Metal and Wire Mesh Materials were chosen to cover the fronts.

The total module’s area is 2000 sq.m. It is the optimum area for 200 people- the average employees number of one department or small IT company’s office. Adjacent areas were developed in a functional and simple way. Landscape solutions were developed as a separation of the pedestrian zone and the roadway. The pedestrian area and a recreation area near the UN.IT are on different levels with parking and roadway.
