The editorial office of Gazeta.ru occupies the third and the fourth floors of a 4-story building. Office accommodation comprises work space areas for individuals and teams, meeting rooms, lounge-zones, mini coffee points as well as a kitchen-dining-room located on the 4th mansard floor.
Since the portal`s reports cover a wide range of news: politics, style, auto news, Architects decided to show the scope of information the agency reported using only one color- White. The office features polished white floors and glass sleek walls in black frames.
The whole publication process is very fast so the speed of communications between different departments is extremely important that’s why working desks are placed in an open space. The chief editor`s and his assistants` cabinets are located right in the middle of the editorial office for the convenience of communications and information transfer, thus, interiors were customized for this reason.
The interior is made up mostly with custom furniture produced in local workshops. Grey custom furniture like chair and couches with a pop of color calms soothes and gives an energizing effect.
