our work

The 'espresso bars' are arranged at the intersection of two corridors. The existing file lifts and storage rooms will be canceled. The new, open area to the hallway is marked by an ellipsoid standing table.

The foyer and tea kitchen on the ground floor are connected by a large-format glass door, so that the room can be experienced from the foyer and invites to communicate.

Cupboards and high tables are made of high-gloss plastic, the worktops are made of a white-glossy artificial stone. In line with the minimalist design approach, there are no visible handles. The wall cabinets are equipped with sliding glass doors.
