head office of grocery in kyiv

Office interior for one of the biggest Ukrainian retail companies. The project area is 3000 m2. The main task was to provide sunlight and insolation in spaces with ceiling 5.6m height. The additional task was to create space, where people can work with pleasure and have some rest. It was decided to create ылнlightы and glass partitions in order to create second levels and maximize area utilization. This was crucial in spaces where сompactness were more important then flatness. Relax and activity zones were designed for workers’ rest and productivity.
