A Tour of Biosphere Corporation’s Biophilic Office in Kiev
Household products manufacturer Biosphere Corporation recently hired architecture & interior design firm MONO Architects to design their new office in Kiev, Ukraine.
“The main objective was not only to create an open and effective work environment, but also to reflect the company’s philosophy and values, which produces products for home care and hygiene.
The office was built using a minimalistic approach, but with careful attention to detail, giving the office a modern feel while also being a comfortable working environment. We also reflected the company’s philosophy of environmental consciousness – using recycled eco-materials and incorporating living plants.
Guests to Biosphere are greeted by a clean, minimalist reception area, the focus of which is the reception desk made of artificial white stone. Most noticeable is the metallic sphere set into the stone desk, which, constantly rotating, symbolizes the constant development and progression of the company.
The managers’ offices are located in the center of the floor. They cleanly and visually divide the open space into two departments – the home goods team and the hygiene products team. The exterior walls of these offices are double-glazed tinted glass, designed as such for effective sound insulation and privacy, to maximise concentration and working efficiency.
In the center, there are offices of top managers made of double glass for sound insulation and better concentration. There are several capsule zones in the office for informal meetings made from recycled materials. The office also has several capsules for informal meetings. These are made entirely of recycled materials,” said MONO Architects.
