Banda Agency’s Industrial Office [Kiev]

Banda Agency is an Ukrainian creative studio with an office located on Vozdvizhenka – the historical district of Kiev. Aiming to create a comfortable working space for artistic souls, it has commissioned Balbek Bureau to design an industrial interior full of the unexpected.

Divided into functional spaces, the he office features a front desk, working spaces, meeting rooms and two lounge areas alongside a terrace. To make its employees feel as if they could be anywhere but not at work, the architects played with conventional idea of of an office.

There is a meeting-swimming-pool and communal areas furnished with vintage gems. There is an in-door glass house and plenty of light-filled spots where big wooden tables and metal chairs encourage interactions and the exchange of ideas. By mixing minimalist decor with raw industrial elements, the office allows employees to move between various spaces which eliminates the sense of lassitude and stimulates creativity.
