Yandex St. Petersburg office — 2

2 Piskarevskiy ave., St. Petersburg

In this project the architects had at least two challenges — first to organize a very complex space outstretched along the central corridor axis. The second challenge was to make the office showy and impressive. Architects decided to use the double loaded zoning, with meeting pods, work areas, and unusual objects located along the corridor. The unusual objects are provided with a particular function. As a result of this concept implementation, guests find themselves «inside» the Yandex search service. While walking in the corridors they can see the familiar user name and email password input boxes, and at each step they meet symbols and icons of Yandex services, although they are not always easy to recognize, as tiny pixel icons had turned into 3D objects.In this project the architects had at least two challenges — first to organize a very complex space outstretched along the central corridor axis.
