zaha hadid organizes moscow's dominion office building around central atrium

 

designed by zaha hadid architects, the ‘dominion office building’ is among the first realized structures to be built for moscow’s emerging yuzhnoportovy district. internally, the scheme is conceived as a series of vertically stacked floorplates arranged around an atrium, which rises through the building. balconies at each level correspond to the displacement of the outer envelope, while a series of staircases interconnect through this central void.

owing to the building’s programmatic layout — with a ground floor restaurant adjoining the outdoor terrace — the atrium becomes a shared space that encourages interaction between the employees of the building’s various companies. as many IT and creative industry start-ups regard this research culture as important for progress and development, this integration also serves to encourage collaboration between companies of different services and disciplines. offices are arranged within a system of standard rectilinear bays that provide space for small, expanding or large companies.
