Sberbank Headquarters (Atrium) by Evolution Design
2019 - 2020, Platinum A' Interior Space and Exhibition Design Award Winner
Sberbank is currently developing a new corporate district in Moscow. The bank commissioned Evolution Design to completely reconstruct a 30.000 square meter building into a multifunctional head office. The reconstruction scheme was inspired by the internal atrium, passing through 9 floors of the 10-storey building. The daylight flooded atrium with coworking spaces and a coffee bar is the heart of the new head office and acts as a magnet in connecting people from different departments.
The daylight flooded atrium acts as a centrepiece complete with a suspended diamond-shaped meeting room, 20-meter-high living walls and a series of cantilevered meeting areas. With the offices on each side, the green walls and the mirrored reflections of the floating room, the whole space has a really futuristic feel.
Design Challenges
The main challenge was the complete reconstruction of a previously erected concrete structure with the introduction of new public functions, like the conference centre and the atrium, and the design of a modern and flexible office space that meets the requirements of adjustable workspaces and a diversity of work and recreation areas. Biophilic considerations, smart lighting, ventilation and acoustic solutions were all part of the design scheme.
Production Technology
The construction of the suspended diamond meeting room consists of a floor with a hidden load bearing steel frame and a thin triangulated structure, clad with translucent and mirror panels, all different in shape and size. The suspension cables have been designed flexible and are equipped with tension measurement system to allow for real-time monitoring of the tension forces and immediate adjustments, compared against the calculated lengths.
