Yandex Offices in Ukraine’s Capital
You have probably already heard about Russian search engine called Yandex. With its more than 4500 employees and 56 million daily unique users, Yandex is the most visited website in Russia (social network VK.com is the second) and can be definitely considered as a Russian equivalent to Google. Yandex has offices in a lot of places including Germany, USA, Switzerland or Turkey. However today we will look at Yandex two floor office space in Kiev, Ukraine’s capital city which was designed by Moscow based studio za bor architects.
“Every project we strive to make the most eсofriendly. It appears in the use of mostly natural materials and creation of user-friendly spaces: comfortable, quirky, even cheerful ones, the spaces which don’t resemble dull gray offices in their standard plastic version. While developing the concept of the Yandex Kiev office we wanted to create a modern and welcoming space — that is, to put in it qualities of IT-company, which is famous for the careful attitude to their staff”, says Arseniy Borisenko and Peter Zaytsev from za bor architects
