Appreciation towards M3 Architects for providing the following description:

我们的首要关注点是IT 办公室的功能分区,从中发现可以改进的地方。我们希望它不仅仅是一个位于乌克兰基辅市中心,拥有成熟的基础设施配套以及便利的交通的开放合作办公空间,我们决定要为IT专家们创造完美的办公室,并且将它从市中心搬到更加绿色的郊区。

We had focused our attention to the functional zoning for IT-office first and we understood that existing solutions can be improved. A spacious co-working, the center of Kiev, the developed infrastructure, good transportation are not enough. We have decided to create the perfect office for IT-experts and relocate the office from main streets to a green suburb.

We analyzed the details of IT-experts schedule and conditions of work. The main issue of the project to improve the conditions of work for IT-professionals in accordance with their actual needs and lifestyle.

1. 程序员并非按照大城市通用的工作时间来工作(9: 00-18: 00);他的日常节奏由截止时间所决定。
1.IT expert doesn’t work in by the work schedule of the big city (9: 00-18: 00), his daily rhythm is the deadline.
2. 将哪怕最好的办公室放在市中心不是一个好主意,因为随之而来的交通问题和高房租。
2. To place even the best office in the city center is inefficient because of the traffic, high cost areas.
3. IT的组织方式需要更多的非标准机动工作区,同时还需要更大的标准工位。
3. Specificity of the organization requires additional, non-standard solutions function workspace, entailing an increase in the nominal minimum space required for one specialist.
4. 研究表明程序员通常比较内向,更偏好安静舒适的生活环境。
4. It is no secret by the results of research that most of the developers are introverts who prefer a quiet and comfortable life.


There was born the idea of a universal-office module for IT-company. We developed the concept of an independent module with its own infrastructure. This module was developed as the first “brick” for the future IT-city. There was developed a complete ecosystem, micro- infrastructure, which can be the beginning for the adjacent areas development. To develop the 1st unit we chose the area in a 20-minute transportation from the center of Kiev.

The shape is based on the classic form. It is a box. It was divided into 4 functional zones.

中庭将是这个建筑不可或缺的部分。盒子的形状根据技术及功能需求发生相应的调整。中庭的形状随着建筑的形状而发生变化。立面材料的选择来自现代技术的影响。我们选择了金属网作为表皮材料,以象征IT 市场的透明性。

There was important to organize an internal courtyard. In the point of necessary issues and the idea of technologies the box changed its shape. A simple geometry of the yard also had been changed. The selection of façade’s materials was determined by the idea of modern technology. The market of IT- technologies is transparent and we find new unique products daily. We chose Metal and Wire Mesh Materials to cover the fronts.

Functional planning


The total module’s area is 2000 sq.m, including reception, meeting area, conference hall, office open space, co-working, Gym, café-coworking, lounge, courtyard, recreation area, game area. Adjacent areas were developed in a functional and simple way. Landscape solutions were developed as a separation of the pedestrian zone and the roadway. The pedestrian area and a recreation area near the UN.IT are on different levels with parking and roadway.
