Domino – Business Center

The office complex is situated in the center of Moscow and includes five pre-existing buildings from different periods. As each building was not connected to the adjacent buildings the key task was to connect them in a way that would allow the office to work efficiently.

The solution was to introduce public areas on the ground level from which people could access any upper floor. This ensures the flexibility of the building’s use: office spaces can be leased by room, by floor or by building. To make this possible a number of architectural solutions were introduced: a glass passage-ramp between two of the buildings, an external ramp towards the main entrance etc.

These solutions formed the identity of the complex and merged nicely with the elegant historical façades.
Because the complex is located in historical urban surroundings, the second task was to compensate for the lack of green areas and parking spaces on the small site. In order to do this a 3-story mechanical
parking garage was introduced.

All external areas can be used for different events or for recreation by the office workers. The black and white facades that lend their name to the complex, originated from the idea of treating everything that had historical value with white, and treating all the new additions with black including the cladding of the Pyatnickaya street frontal building which was an ugly reminder of the 70s.
