Gazeta ru News Agency Office | Nefa Architects

Gazeta ru is one of the oldest news agencies in Russia. Owned by a large media holding Rambler&Co, the editorial office of Gazeta ru was relocated to Danilovskaya Manufactura, a 19th-century former manufacture building, to join other subdivisions of the media group. Nefa Architects were assigned to design the new office.

The Business Goal of Gazeta ru by Nefa Architects:

The challenge was to create a comfortable and multifunctional workspace for a journalists’ team that included areas for different activities – zones for concentrated work along with various meeting and social spaces.
The editorial office of Gazeta ru occupies the third and the fourth floors of a 4-story building. Office accommodation comprises workspace areas for individuals and teams, meeting rooms, lounge-zones, mini coffee points as well as a kitchen-dining-room located on the 4th mansard floor.

Besides, employees can use a multifunctional hall equipped with most modern audio-visual equipment for conferences, lectures, meetings, and presentations. Formally, the hall belongs to Chempionat.com – another subdivision of the media holding Rambler&Co – but both teams have it at their disposal.
The whole publication process is very fast so the speed of communications between different departments is extremely important. That`s why working desks are placed in an open space. The chief editor`s and his assistants` cabinets are located right in the middle of the editorial office for the convenience of communications and information transfer with all the departments of the news agency.

The portal`s reports cover a wide range of news: politics, style, auto news. Architects decided to show the scope of information the agency reported using only one color- White. Graphic black accents on the floors and windows create an image of a newspaper page or an information website.
The interior is made up mostly with custom furniture produced in local workshops according to the architects` sketches.
