During the interior work on the old Sberbank headquarters in Moscow, the architects were able to let their creativity run wild. The result is a very modern interior featuring spacious areas, including private places of retreat.

Work is currently ongoing on the new headquarters of the Russian financial institution Sberbank in Moscow, with over 40 company offices from across the capital coming together at a single, state-of-the-art banking centre known as Sberbank City. The new headquarters consists of five buildings, with two already in operation and the remaining three currently under construction.

A meeting place
One of these buildings is the former headquarters of the bank, which was completely refurbished while retaining its original structure. The result is a bright atrium extending over several floors and adorned with two green walls featuring lush vegetation. The central area of the headquarters features a snack bar and open-plan co-working areas that can be used for meetings.

Catering facilities in the centre of the atrium.

A suspended meeting pod
A particularly eye-catching feature is the “Diamond” meeting pod, which is suspended above the atrium. The room owes its name to the unique design reminiscent of the precious stone. The mirrored panels reflect the surrounding area, meaning its appearance changes depending on the point of view of the observer. Six other meeting rooms protrude out of the building structure and give the atrium an additional dynamic.

Modern office concept
When planning the workspaces, the agile working methods of the staff had to be taken into account. The rooms were designed to allow flexible use. In addition to classic workspaces and the co-working area, there are also several rooms used for retreat and relaxation, plus meeting rooms of all sizes to facilitate working in teams. This is rounded off by a multipurpose hall with space for up to 500 people.
