The project had to be completed in a short time. When developing office interiors it was necessary to take into account the structural features of the building (two rows of supporting columns located along the central axis of the room)  and the historical environment of industrial architecture of the 19th century, which includes the Danilovskaya Manufactory.

The main idea of ​​the interior is to create an image of a mathematically clear structure, use "Architectural" techniques in the solution of space, consonant with the internal architecture of computer programs, on which employees of the unit work.

The image of a pure "mathematical" space is solved by a minimal set of parts and materials. The project uses only white, black and gray colors, a combination of different-sized cubes and black graphic lines of designs with local gray accents.
