// Topcon HQ at Novospassky Dvor



We've designed full refurbishment of the Topcon exsisting office.


We were invited to carry out design for refurbishment and extension of existing office based at Novospassky Dvor business center. We came up with new space plan, updated design and full construction drawings package (apart from SCS). We provided site supervision during construction as well.



This project is a classic example of how to do an existing office refurbishment after 10-12 of a lease in a proper way. During 10 years time finishes became outdated and some engineering systems wear down substantially. What do you do if you're fine with the property? And how do you perform refurbishment works while your team is using the premises?

Our task was to freshen up the office, but also to take care of some problems that became annoying during previous years of the lease. For example, large open plan areas had proven inefficient, because different teams would distract each other. Another thing - since Topcon is occupying the top floor of the building it fell victim to the leaky roof.

Core concept - which we actively promote - business minimalism - very light with least distractions. To provide extra privacy for the teams we've design glass partitions that divide the open plan into smaller clusters for 12-16 people. While blocking noise, a glass partition provides unobstructed natural light inside the workspace. Individuality is created by using colourful translucent film on glass partitions.

Since height was enough, we've designed catwalks over the false ceiling. Catwalks allow technicians to perform maintenance on all HVAC equipment and also fight roof leakage. 

Acoustic comfort was a great concern. Not only we used acoustic false ceilings, but also sound-dampening vinyl flooring and sound-absorbing acoustic panels on walls.
