  • Megabudka┬áhas designed a multifunctional office and showroom for Moscow-based DK Project.

    “The main task of the project was to combine functional office with a design showroom. Design & style needed to be in line with new DK Project location – Artplay Design Centre – where two design schools (Marsh and the British Higher School of Art & Design), the Moscow Film Academy are situated, also some fairs and exhibitions are based in this place.

    It was necessary to create a dynamic space which is convenient for the company’s employees, inspire for the friendly communications & comfortable for lectures & workshops.

    Now the DK Project office – showroom is a bright point of design and communications in Artplay Design Center. It co-operate & attract designers, architects and creative people who appreciate quality, who are willing to share new ideas & work together for developing the modern design concept. The architects moved away from the traditional space planning view, they are freed from the complex horizontal design, and looked towards the space as art-object, a single whole of design & functional, which includes the basic zones.

    Instead of standard horizontal zoning, Megabudka proposed vertical zoning: in the center of the space they installed two – level metal frame structure assembled from 13 rectangular blocks of different sizes.The space consists of blocks, parallelepipeds, located at different heights. Each of them perform own function & tasks: work space, meeting area, coffee-point.

    Simple outer wood cover shows and enhances the dynamic of each block-figures. The internal complexity is revealed by various decorative and design elements – panels, saturated & rich colors combines with sophisticated lighting solutions.

    The same modular concept is preserved for the facade, which is not only a showcase but an important image element of the project and the company in global. Facade highlights the complexity of the whole structure, and unusual causes architectural approach.”
