As a quarantine follow-up, the space underwent some transformation into separated rooms. The total area of 212 sq.m. hosts lecture zone convertible into the open space for the employees, reception, cozy living room, comfortable kitchenette, coffee point and 5 offices. All office areas have the same design style yet each with own ins and outs.

The abundance of natural materials in the decoration and ergonomic furniture highlight the project practicality and versatility. The combination of shapes and textures adds variety to the neutral design of the office. The interior color scheme helps avoid workplace distractions and maintains a welcoming atmosphere for visitors. Light colors are not overloading, and some colorful accents bring dynamism.

A special attention is paid to the custom zoning of specific areas. Wood-lined wall niches fill the room with soft light and encourage efficient work. Minimalistic decorative elements bring excellence and integrity to the interior.

All modular furniture and wood-like wall cladding are custom made by Katerina Churina’s furniture atelier.
