FLOOR PLAN – LEVEL TWO

The outer ring provides a continuous circulation path on the second floor between all of the research bars and the inner rings while housing the Central Administration office suites that serve the University.  As such, it creates a dynamic intersection between public and private that the design of the office suites responds to through program placement and innovative space types.  At the entry into the research bars occurring intermittently throughout these office suites, lounge and tea rooms are designed to provide active nodes shared by both the researchers and administration.

The Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology is poised to become a ground breaking center for academic research in Russia. Through its organization and design it will link biomedical, materials engineering, computational, energy and space research to industry leaders, creating a preeminent entrepreneurial research institution.

The design for a fit-out of 688,900 DGSF (64,000 DGSM) space uses floor plan typologies that share a common kit of parts, meeting the diverse research needs of ten Centers for Research, Education and Innovation (CREIs). Those plan typologies include high bay, open lab with support, dry lab, computational spaces and offices which are accommodated by a laminated scheme. This approach partnered with seven M bay spacing allows plan customization that effectively addresses the unique research envisioned by the CREIs.

Above ground, “north-south roads” link the CREIs and provide places for CREI identity and interaction. Core or shared facilities are located largely below ground and include: optical and advanced imaging, glassblowing and machine shops, glass wash and media prep, cleanroom and a vivarium. The combination provides a centralized place for technology that links the CREIs’ research and allows for greater flexibility in CREI laboratories design and use.
