Complete scope of fit-out works at office premises
The team of Gint-M has completed the project of headquarters for a large international IT company, namely JetBrains that puts out professional tools for software development. The new 25,000-sqm office of JetBrains is accommodated in two eight-storey towers and the podium of a former apartment hotel on the shore of the Gulf of Finland in St. Petersburg at the following address: 70 bld. 1, Primorsky prospekt.
The design of JetBrains’ headquarters was developed by Russia-based UNK Project Architects, with the international firm AECOM being in charge of the project management. Gint-M performed a full range of general construction works in the podium and 15,000-sqm eastern tower of the cluster. The project became a winner of the prestigious Best Office Awards SPb 2019 in the Comfort nomination.
There is everything necessary for an effective working process as well as communication and chill-out in the new home of JetBrains. The office towers have a common ground floor housing a reception zone, a large two-level cafeteria with an open terrace and opening up scenic views on the Gulf of Finland; they also feature classrooms and three conference halls where meet-ups and conferences are held. Incidentally, the largest conference hall is formed from two meeting zones, courtesy of a sliding 6-meter-tall partition, which allows space transformation for different types of events and has enough room 400 guests. For sports lovers there is a gym with massage rooms and ping pong zones.
JetBrains благодарит строительную компанию «Гинт-М» за реализацию проекта по созданию офисного интерьера в новой штаб-квартире компании. Офис расположен в Приморском районе Санкт-Петербурга по адресу Приморский проспект, д. 70, стр. 1. В роли генподрядчика «Гинт-М» осуществила полный комплекс общестроительных работ.
В проекте реализованы современные отделочные и интерьерные решения, интегрированы высокие технологии, использовано высококачественное инженерное оборудование.
Shades of gray with bright color accents, augmented with wall finishes made of timber and stone, were used to design the entrance lobby. A large interactive display sends a message to visitors that they have entered a realm of high technologies and innovations. Live plants soften the hi-tech interior, making it warm and cozy.
Both office towers are permeated with atriums lit with light, whereas workspaces are created all around them. An intricate geometry of bypass galleries round the atriums required high-flown professionalism from the team of Gint-M and the contractor’s employees successfully coped with the challenge.
Tranquil neutral shades prevail in the fit-out of office premises, with color accents in recreation areas and coffee points. Four meeting rooms are fashioned on each of the working floors, whereas isolated rooms with soundproofing are set up for phone calls. The upper floors of the office space feature recreation zones; for instance in the eastern tower chill-out rooms, a kicker hall, billiards and music rooms are fashioned on the upper floor levels. Panoramic views of the Neva, the Gulf of Finland and Lakhta-Centre skyscraper deserve a special mention.
“The new home for JetBrains in Primorsky district of St. Petersburg became the company’s biggest office which brought together developers of various products under the same roof. A special emphasis in the headquarters is placed on creating a comfortable working environment as well as recreation zones where employees would be able to relax and rub shoulders. The project flaunts modern fit-out and interior solutions, integrating high technologies, thus making the space truly functional,” says Artem Panteleev, Business Development Director, Gint-M, commenting on the project.
