It was in 2016 that we started the process of adapting Foster+Partners project concept of Russian Copper Company Headquarters’ building. It is for the first in Russia to have a building designed by world famous Norman Foster. We had to work on outside illumination of the building as well as lightening of the adjacent territory. In fact, we acted as a consultative body in this part of the project.

The façade is made up of volumetric panels in a complex shade of copper and a complex configuration. Which allowed us to achieve the desired gradients utilizing combinations of light of certain luminous temperatures with a slight addition of red accents, thus the light does not seem excessive: there is some but there is no.
Status: Completed project

All greenery looks absolutely natural due to special attention to color rendering and selection of light temperatures. The main thing we managed to achieve is the feeling of comfort. When one gets certain emotion, they never search for the source that makes feel so good. Perhaps, that was the most important thing, i.e., creation of a special atmosphere of comfort.
