Lenz Architects Designs a Futuristic Co-Working Space in Almaty, Kazakhstan

In central Almaty, Kazakhstan’s largest metropolis and cultural hub, Damir Ussenov and his team at Lenz Architects created a futuristic co-working space for an IT company that combines bold colors and solid concrete with pure minimalism and curved shapes. Blue, being the color of the company’s logo, and orange, “chosen to dilute cold tones and concrete with a warm shade,” per Ussenov, create an energizing balance of hues throughout the office in both upholstery and dividing screens. A variety of lighting installations and acoustic panels overhead enable productivity while soundproof meeting rooms assure confidentiality. Open around the clock, the industrial, nearly futuristic, aesthetic perfectly suits those at the fore of technological innovation.
