Office Interior Design Overview
The Forward Media Group, for instance, publishes the largest and the most popular in Russia and Russian-speaking countries magazines on interior design, in addition to several popular and well-recognized magazines such as ‘Hello’, including the main edition ‘Interior+design’ and specialized periodically ‘100% Office’, ‘100% Bathrooms’, ‘100% Kitchens’ and so on. To design this office interior design, the architect, za bor architects was chosen among several thousands of architects.
This office interior design was a huge loft which has an area for about 4,200 square meters and it is significally elongated and located in the mansard level of a new business center, so this office was destined to be quite complex. By the peculiarity of the publishing house, the situation was made worse, such as the need for the editorial offices with the open spaces as well as the commercial and retail departments, separates offices for the directors and the editors-in-chief with a conference corner, conference halls, archive with library, storage rooms etc. And along the corridor, all of these vital facilities should be placed going through the whole room. The last, the open spaces offices were concentrated on the one side and the cabinets were mainly located on the other side of the office corridor.
The communication points were supposed to be transparent and not to be vanished in a homogeneous office. It is resulted in the elevator lobby with the stones, bright receptions and meeting rooms were emphasized; a yellow complex construction hides the entrances to the toilets; the black floral pattern marks the archive room. The architect has designated the same concern which is the specific build-in furniture for the visitors. In contrast, the operational areas are designed in a neutral gray.
Under a ceiling of the mansard level, the technical communications placed as well as rafters and baulks have not been hidden, but it is painted in black instead, which visually elevated and extended the ceiling. Recently, the publishing house has moved to another building, it is historical Trechgornaya Manufacture building complex. But all the elaborate construction elements have been preserved and it is reinstalled in the new office architecture design.
