Fosters unveils designs for Russian headquarters

Foster + Partners has revealed designs for a new headquarters for Russian copper manufacturer RMK in Yekaterinberg

According to the practice, the building moves away from open plan offices and instead of large spaces, has domestic scale rooms described as ‘house for staff’.

The scheme will be constructed in two-storey modules, with pairs of offices stacked one above another. These modules are arranged in rows along a central hallway.

The 13-storey building, which is clad in bronze coloured steel panels, features a 12-metre tall entrance lobby displaying RMK’s products.

Sitting within a public park, the building also includes a private garden for staff, a gym, sauna, meeting spaces and a dining room.

Luke Fox, senior executive partner at Foster + Partners, said: ‘This is a great example of our integrated approach – our architects and our in-house specialist disciplines have worked closely together as a single team to create a truly integrated solution that is both perfectly tailored to RMK’s needs, and provides a powerful new symbol for their organisation.’
