The new Google office occupies an entire floor at the business center Baltschug Plaza. In two thousand six hundred square meters, except for jobs, post 18 meeting rooms, 2 massage rooms, cafe Samobranka and kitchenette.
Google has moved into a new office in Moscow on December 8, 2010 in year five-year presence in the Russian market. Gathered under one roof staff development department, sales and marketing, previously worked in two different buildings.
In developing the concept of the new office was attended by the employees themselves Google – the interiors are based on their preference. Moscow Googlers wanted to create an office that reflects the corporate culture of Google, but it had the “Russian soul”. As a result, the choice fell on Russian folk tales, and favorite childhood cartoons and films. Entire office, including meeting rooms, decorated in the style of famous works. For example, you can sit on a replica of “12 chairs” in the negotiation of the same name, spinning the wheel in “Vrungel, count birds in the” 38 Parrots “or the warm hearth in the Pope Carlo.
In “Russian” style decorated and other areas of the office. Thus, the reception desk made of brick, which reflects the architectural heritage of the Moscow Kremlin. Cafe “Samobranka” similar to the refectory in traditional Russian style: buffet table laid out with tiles, handmade tile, and patterns of stained glass lamps on the ceiling made by the ornamental painting of St. Basil’s Cathedral. These ideas are brought to life designer Tatiana Ruegg, who worked on the interior of the Zurich office of Google.
As in other offices of Google, the employees in Moscow there is a possibility in his free time playing table tennis and football, mini-pool or video games.
Office became the center of the magic forest – Curved seashore, where the bar you can drink coffee and chat with colleagues in almost home. Here in the woods is a small library with a soft and comfortable sofas and shelves of books. There were, of course, no Memorial Solovetsk Antiquities – huts on chicken legs, which like to gather to discuss the project engineers Google.
