OFFCON architectural bureau has designed the new offices of media asset management company Media Alliance, located in Moscow, Russia.
The dominant feature of Media Alliance’s new office is that it is highly functional and utilitarian: two floors accommodate over 120 workplaces, several conference rooms, cloakrooms, server rooms, cosy lounge area, coffee area and cafeteria. Fyodor Rashchevsky describes the central idea behind this design as ‘manifestation of bravery, passion for adventure and wildlife, romantic spirit, longing for freedom and self-expression’.
According to the architect, it was Media Alliance’s impressive portfolio of world-renowned brands – Discovery Channel, TLC, ID Xtra, Animal Planet, Discovery Science, DTX, Eurosport 1, Eurosport 2, Eurosportnews, Cartoon Network, Boomerang and CNN – that inspired him to create that ultramodern, comfortable, design with every centimetre of space put to use.
Structures and height of Old industrial building allowed to create a balcony with few meeting rooms, game area & cafeteria. ‘Changes always inspire new accomplishments, teach us to think outside the box and find unorthodox ways of bringing one’s ideas to life, especially when it comes to things around us’ , says Grigory Lavrov, General Director at Media Alliance. ‘I think that OFFCON architects got to the very core of our company’s character, and translated it into interior design so expertly that while sitting in this new office you do want to reach new heights together and work on big ideas. I believe that this is what architecture and design are all about– inspiring discoveries’.
