za bor architects is a Moscow based architectural workshop founded in 2003 by principals Arseniy Borisenko and Peter Zaytsev. The workshop’s objects are created mainly in contemporary aesthetic. What distinguishes them is an abundance of architectural methods used both in architectural and interior design, as well as a complex dynamical shape which is a calling card of za bor architects projects. The interiors demonstrate this feature especially brightly, since for all their objects architects create built-in and mobile furniture themselves.


Currently za bor successfully leads international practice. The portfolio offers wide diversity and consists of residential houses and interiors, offices, office complex, infrastructure projects, urban planning concepts.

Among the clients of za bor architects there are IT, media, business, government companies such as Badoo, BP, Yandex, Forward Media Group, Inter RAO UES, Moscow Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and many others.


Many conceptual and completed projects of za bor architects were awarded with dozens of prizes. They are listed in trend books of international advertising agencies and are represented in furniture catalogues of famous office furniture brands.
