THE TOTAL SQUARE 25 770 м2
ADDRESS B. Tatarskaya str., 13
The second, third, fourth and fifth floors represent working open space. There are mobile units (2.7 x 2.7 m) called «stinktenki» (Russian play on the work «think tank»). In fact, these are enclosed meeting rooms that can be moved when needed for a particular workgroup. Initially, they were to move on wheels, however that design proved to be too costly. Consequently, stationary walls and a special type of ceiling had to be used, thus limiting the movement of the module, to provide access to the HVAC systems. Two of the walls of the module are painted in orange or green (depending on the floor: on even green dominates, on odd its orange) and the other two are made of clear glass with a pattern resembling birch tree trunks.
The lighting solution requires special attention. Architects almost completely abandoned the standard build-in ceiling lights, instead installing floor-standing luminaries with occupancy sensors. Only in a few corridor areas LED down-lights are used. All this led to significant energy saving, enabling Siemens to claim the prestigious international certification LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design).
