When one of the leaders in the Russian oil industry wanted to bring together their headquarters staff from disparate offices into one ergonomic centre, they purchased a state-of-the-art building in the Moscow International Business Centre. Inspired by Rodin’s The Kiss, Tatlin’s Tower and St. Basil’s Cathedral, the building’s design reflects their sculptural forms with a noticeable twist. With each floor offset by 3 degrees around the central core. Evolution Tower’s final form is an elegant clockwise rotation from base to top of around 135 degrees. All of which provides around 80,000m2 of office space over 55 floors, with 3 floors below ground.
The new organization wanted to seize the opportunity to maximize the benefits of the building by making it as smart as possible, with a consolidated infrastructure supporting systems such as HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), room scheduling, access, surveillance, fire alarms and car parking, as well as serving the data centre and enabling PoE (Power over Ethernet) for IP telephony.
