Geolog Office Complex

Developer: Hutton Development
Blank Architects has created an architectural concept, interior and landscape design for the multifunctional GEOLOG business center (23 Obrucheva Street) by Hutton Development. The project has already been approved by the Moskomarkhitektura: a 13-storey office building with underground parking, open public terraces and all the necessary infrastructure will appear.

IDEA

The complex’s architecture is based on the principle of "tectonic shifts": the displacement of parts of the building relative to each other. The idea of the architectural concept of the business center was the work and scientific discoveries of the scientist-geologist, traveler and researcher Vladimir Afanasyevich Obruchev. The main focus of the project in architecture was on the "natural element" in the architectural form. The building seems to be "divided" into 2 parts of different volumes, resembling the shift of tectonic plates. By identifying the compositional angle, the ground part of the object is accentuated.

Open spaces and multifunction

The principle of open spaces in offices is implemented with the help of viewing terraces designed at the level of the upper floors. The architectureе highlights the structure of the building and makes it particularly spectacular in the evening. In the design of the facades, white and gray panels are used. The area of the facade glazing increases depending on the height of the floor, opening up unique views to the users of the object.
In addition to the offices, the new complex will include a lobby with a reception, an internal retail and a cafe for users, as well as a restaurant and a business lounge. Inside the facility, there will be a two-light space with panoramic windows, divided into several functional zones – for waiting for visitors with soft sofas in the center of the hall, and at the entrance group – for organizing the logistics of couriers. An important element of the design of the common areas has become a spiral staircase-it leads visitors to the mezzanine with a business lounge, which can be reserved for meetings or as a flexible isolated workplace.
