Project Description

Sberbank commissioned Evolution Design to create a striking entrance to two adjoining high-rise towers that form part of Sberbank’s campus in Moscow. The hyperbolic paraboloid form that rises up at either end does not minimize daylight in the lower levels of the towers and provides sufficient space for all the required functions – entrance facilities for 10,000 employees who work in the two towers, central reception, several restaurants, cafés, a conference centre and a spacious stepped seating.
Both entrances are crowned in a series of champagne-colored triangulated panels, creating a strong design statement. This warm-colored pattern of glass bead blasted and reflective cladding ties the new structure into the ensemble of Sberbank buildings on the campus, which all feature similar cladding material. The glazed façade and the glossy steel crown create playful reflections of pedestrians arriving and leaving the towers and glow up in different shades depending on the daylight.
The vast, column-free interiors are bathed in daylight, with lush trees, green-walls and hanging gardens delivering a sense of an oasis.
