The office of the NGRS Recruiting Company is located in the centre of Moscow, near the Kremlin and Red Square, in the building of the former factory of the famous Russian entrepreneur Savva Mamontov. The arches and semi-circular steps are reminiscent of a city square, with the rooms around looking like buildings. The window sills are connected with one cage, which is repeated in the table legs. The interior is monochrome, and only the screed floor stands out in pink. The architects made the decision to keep some of the walls in the historic building without plaster, to give a sense of that time. It’s especially eloquent where the unplastered wall overlaps with clear glass, two different materials from two different eras meeting each other, creating a museum atmosphere.
