There is always a place for beauty in our life. This statement has been proved by ma talented designer and the member of the Russian Artists Association Elena Vasilyeva and a famous architect, a member of the Russian Architects Association Dmitry Pshenichnikov (his projects had success in Russia, Austria, Finland, Yugoslavia and Turkey).
Together with NAYADA company they completely transformed the old ramshackle test room of a plant named after Tupolev with crumbling walls and floor into a modern and beautiful office of Trigor company, which admires by the originality of its style and unconventional solutions.
Conference rooms and other facilities are situated in the center of the office in the shape of an ellipse. Considering the space constraint it was decided to make this ellipse transparent. The task wasn't easy due to the complicated dome construction of the ceiling, which amounted to 7 m.
To realize this idea NAYADA engineers offered a NAYADA-Raumann system. Its , design features allowed to build a partition of the required height and also increase its rigidity by means of using concealed steel pipes. High stability of the whole construction allowed to install not only glass 3 meter-high sections, but also the original suspended ceiling with a non-standard fixture. Engineering environmental support systems of the office didn't allow to fix suspended constructions to the ceiling, and leaving metal pipes and air vents open was not aesthetic at all.
In the result the specialists created a unique glass ceiling construction, in which all the metal fixture elements naturally combined with the look of the ceiling void, and the weight was evenly divided along the whole perimeter of the partition.
The glass sector of the partition, which composed an ellipse was fully coated with a mirror tape. Multiple reflections and light refractions visually enhance the space of the corridor zone making it lighter.
Abundance of glass and metal used in the office decoration is balanced by the warmth and softness of wood. Thanks to this contrast NAYADA engineers managed to avoid the effect of cold alienation in the interior. The corridor zone of the office is decorated with NAYADA-Regina Line finished with rare olive root veneer. Special multilayered lacquer coating and carefully calibrated intervals and the size of the glass insets between panels make the partition really lustrous and shiny, which allows to visually enhance the space and adds complexity and intensity to the interior.
According to NAYADA specialists, during the work on this project they constantly had to look for and create new unconventional solutions, which would help to fully implement the architect's idea. During the office building practically all the systems were used in a combination with each other. Thus, the elements of NAYADA-Tempo system, which perform the duty of windows are inserted into NAYADA-Regina Line partition comprising the corridor zone. In the central rooms located in the ellipse veneer partitions became the element of NAYADA-Raumann decoration.
