Yandex Belgrade Headquarters

A teleport corridor runs through every floor, leading to common spaces with a very different vibe: the functional, basic workspace areas are juxtaposed with sci-fi meeting rooms, lounge areas, and coffee points, each featuring different combinations of bright colors, textures, materials, and laid-back design solutions.

The work patterns of software developers fit into a series of recurring scenarios: hours spent in front of a monitor, individual or group video conferences, and offline personal meetings. The complex, multifunctional space enables the creation of “third spaces” inside the office: people can switch between tasks, relax, and change places several times a day and avoid repetitions. The office is not only people-friendly: the overarching idea of openness and cordiality embraces not only employees or visitors but their pets as well. The flooring is stain-resistant while one of the balconies is transformed into a dog-walking ground.
