Headquarters complex for RusHydro in central Moscow within two 18th century protected villas plus an adjacent newly constructed office building
We were appointed by RusHydro, Russia’s largest hydro-electricity provider, to design their new Cat A and B workplace in the context of two historic and protected villas plus a newly constructed building for which we designed entirely new, energy efficient facades.
All aspects of the project design were developed as an expression of the dynamic, energetic brand of the company. Sustainability design factors and staff well-being considerations were well in advance of local Moscow standards at the time of completion and set a benchmark for others to follow.
Significant cultural change was achieved through the development of new occupancy standards and use management, including a significant reduction in the number and size of assigned offices (located internally away from external windows) plus a rationalisation of open-plan work-settings to future-proof the workplace.
The story of RusHydro’s past, present and future are experienced through the introduction of significant multi-media installations as an expression of the corporate brand and culture
All aspects of the design were created to express the dynamic, energetic brand of the company in technologically advanced ways.
